TURNING STRATEGIC GOALS INTO ACTIONABLE PLANS

 
Fortune magazine estimates that 70% of all strategies fail. Failure often occurs because of ineffective planning methods for turning strategies into executable projects. This session offers a breakthrough planning approach for clearly aligning projects with strategic intent to boost your odds of project success. You will learn a common language and a step-by-step process for designing successful projects, programs, and change initiatives. This proven process builds around four critical strategic questions and the Logical Framework, an interactive planning matrix that brings exceptional clarity at the "fuzzy front-end". This approach begins with examining the big picture strategy and goals. By contrast, traditional project management focuses narrowly on activities, budget, and schedule. This approach is ideal for building effective cross-functional task forces and committed teams. Use this simple method to get a rapid start on creating clear, executable, risk-reduced action plans. The bottom line: Your projects will reach their goals faster, smoother, and with fewer problems.
