Paul Roberts uses real life case studies to characterize and describe the organizational factors and conditions necessary for projects to thrive and achieve strategic objectives. He builds these characterizations around ten imperatives which senior managers can implement both within individual projects and within the institutions that sponsor them, using the tools provided.
Practical and free of jargon, "Strategic Project Management" offers the solutions needed to effectively 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. Roberts includes chapters on the inability of organizations to get the desired value from the money they pay suppliers and on employees burning out in organizations that take on more projects with an ever-reducing workforce.
Latest in the "Strategic Success" series, advising on key operational areas of business practice, this book helps readers build on their skills, knowledge and confidence to rise to the challenge of managing and executing successful projects.
