Presentation: Starting with the End in Mind

Every organisation is required to align and deliver against their Vision, Missions, Values and Strategic Objectives. This is undertaken by day-to-day operations and through executing projects that introduce the required changes. So why is it so hard to predict the future? Project Professionals are asked to deliver projects that align to these core foundations without the benefit of mystical crystal balls or fortune tellers. This workshop will provide you with the context, reflection, and foresight to ensure the requested benefits can be delivered in an efficient and timely manner. Understanding the project lifecycle from a strategic perspective will help you determine what the organisation wants, the prevailing business case, the project assumptions, and the required plans to deliver the outcome benefits realisation.

Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  1. Contextualise the expected outcomes from your projects
  2. Leverage outcomes and assumptions to stay the course
  3. Understand the value of what’s in (and not in) the Business case
  4. Setting up for Benefits Realisation
