Session title: The challenge of aligning projects to business strategy!
All enterprises exist to deliver value to their stakeholders. In the last few years, the nature of enterprise value—and how to achieve it (specifically via the role of projects)—has become a subject of much discussion. The question being regularly asked by CXO’s is “how do all the projects we are currently funding (or propose to fund) help us achieve our business strategy?”
This session, led by guest speaker Peter Harrison, will explore this challenge, and outline several of the value management approaches being currently undertaken in the public sector to address this challenge.
