About the course

Learn to apply critical thinking to project management practices and execute on your organisation's strategic intent.

Organisations are starting to see the importance of project management not as operational response to day-to-day activities, but as a form of strategic foresight and management, with its multidisciplinary skills and particular demand in driving change through effective execution. With the COVID-19 crisis impacting the world, management need to be strategic in how they prioritise, approach projects and drive overall delivery within their areas of responsibility and work to enable the change through the resources and relationships they have at their disposal.

This two day, virtual programme will provide you with the essential techniques, skills and strategic insights that Senior Executives and Project Sponsors of today require to successfully and effectively depict and articulate their strategic intent, derive their end state goals and objectives whilst focusing on the actual delivery at hand (manage, monitor and execute throughout the life cycle of a project) through effective project management.

How you will benefit

At the end of the programme, you will be able to:

  • Gain the necessary insights into what drives effective execution of projects;
  • Identify and articulate what success means when overseeing strategic change and ensure it delivers on the intended business objective(s);
  • Apply a framework to any change enablement effort;
  • Apply strategic processes, design and execution;
  • Gain exposure into project intelligence, software development and information technology operations (DevOps) design thinking; and
  • Improve your execution to deliver tangible value through leading and creating an enabling environment for sequential execution practices and agility.

Key focus areas

  • Leading change through the world of uncertainty
  • Driving your strategic intent and formalising your book of change to do so;
  • Applying critical thinking to your business case and overall approach to execution;
  • Key project components, processesand levers.
  • Measuring success through project intelligence thinking;
  • Review of an actual applied Execution Framework (Design for Adoption) that eliminates the linear thinking to change.
  • Case study analysis and simulation in practice.
