About the book
Strategic Project Management uses real life case examples to characterize and describe the organizational factors and conditions necessary for projects to thrive and to deliver the organization's strategic objectives. This characterization is formed around ten imperatives which senior managers can implement - both within individual projects and, even more crucially, within the institutions that sponsor them - using the tools provided. Accessible, practical and free of jargon, Strategic Project Management offers the solutions needed to successfully prioritize and manage a portfolio of projects, communicate aims, align priorities to organizational objectives, evaluate progress, manage supplier relationships and anticipate and mitigate the risks at every stage. Supported by a comprehensive package of online resources for project portfolio planning, management and analysis this book will help readers to build on their skills, knowledge and confidence to rise to the challenge of governing and delivering successful projects.
