About the course

Many organizations today struggle to capture full business value from the execution of their strategy, whether due to the strategy itself, the selection of the portfolio that enables the strategy, or the actual execution of project-based work that makes the portfolio a reality. Delivering Business Value seeks to teach mindset and tool sets that enable all of those engaged at the strategic, portfolio, and work levels of leadership to make decisions that create the maximum possible business value from their work. The course begins with a focus on defining value in terms of finance, strategy, and business benefits, and helps participants see how they contribute to creating value from their role. It then provides a primer on some finance concepts that are essential to understand for value-driven decision making.

Participants then learn to focus on the different drivers they can use to create value, leveraging financial, strategic, planning, and risk concepts to fully understand the actions they can take in order to drive value. The course utilizes discussions, calculation exercises, case studies, and a business board game simulation to create an engaging and effective learning experience.
