Too often, 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 executing business strategies.

Want to buy it now?

Ask for more info below, or if you are convinced, just add it to your cart.

Project Alignment for Management Teams helps your project managers and their stakeholders:

  1. Understand what is valuable for your organization.
  2. Reduce miscommunication.
  3. Focus their energies and your resources.

Due to its abundant use in organizations, this workshop uses balanced scorecard as the tools to define and align strategic goals. However, balanced scorecard only works if its information is disseminated throughout the organization. This workshop helps executives, PMO managers, executive sponsors, project managers, and their 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.



The more in-depth a team's knowledge and understanding of the corporate goals and strategy, the more likely it will remain focused on those goals, the implementation time will be shorter, and the project objectives will be met.

The benefits of this workshop are to:

  1. Establish a common understanding of Balanced Scorecard throughout your organization.
  2. Keep projects aligned with strategic goals.
  3. Improve leadership capabilities.
  4. Improve communication effectiveness by educating teams in concepts and vernacular relevant to executives.
  5. Reduce scope creep by helping the team better understand the project's real objectives.
  6. Clearly communicate business strategy.
  7. Clarify what changes in a project are of value.
