About the course
Fortune magazine estimates that 70% of all strategies fail. Failure often occurs because of ineffective planning methods for turning strategies into executable projects. This session offers a breakthrough planning approach for clearly aligning projects with strategic intent to boost your odds of project success. You will learn a common language and a step-by-step process for designing successful projects, programs, and change initiatives. This proven process builds around four critical strategic questions and the Logical Framework, an interactive planning matrix that brings exceptional clarity at the "fuzzy front-end".

The bottom line: Your projects will reach their goals faster, smoother, and with fewer problems.
