Vision to Value: Strategically Meeting Business Needs 

Leaders define vision. Business turns vision into value. It still takes a team of executives, stakeholders, project managers, and individual contributors to drive the projects that build the capabilities transforming businesses. Ergo, projects are the enablers for turning vision into value.  Too often, however, project managers and their stakeholders lack the visibility into how their project’s fit into the business’ grand vision.  Think how wonderfully your business would run if everyone from the C-Suite to the feet on the street understood how to maintain focus on executing business strategies.
This workshop will help leaders:
•                Understand what is valuable for your organization.
•                Improve communication.
•                Focus their energies and your resources on corporate goals.
Organizations the world over use balanced scorecard to define their strategic goals. However, balanced scorecard only works if its information is disseminated throughout the organization.  This workshop helps, executive sponsors, PMO managers, project managers, and project teams understand why and how a strategy is defined, the use of activity and strategy maps, and how they apply to the organization’s projects.
This short two-hour session will give you:
•                A basic understanding of Balanced Scorecard.
•                The meaning and usefulness of balanced scorecard.
•                An understanding the three types of projects—strategic, compliance, and operational effectiveness.
•                The key attributes to look for on a project to ensure it is aligned with the corporate strategy.
For those who can stay an extra two hours (four hours total) you will gain:
•                Development and use of activity diagrams.
•                Development of strategy maps.
•                An understanding of cross organization
