​​​​​​​​​​​​​​An Effective, Calculated and Disciplined Approach To Executing On 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 leadership. 

Management need to be strategic in how they approach 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 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 business leadership.

Change-The-Business Portfolio for their teams

through to execution.
