Seminar Description

Topics: Leadership Development, Strategic Application and Governance, Strategic Planning and Implementation

Sub-Topics: Benefits Realization

Strategic initiatives are one of the newest tools in the strategic management toolkit. Organizations of all sizes and in all sectors use them to achieve stretch goals, transform organizations, and gain stakeholder commitment. Strategic initiatives are bold endeavors with large organizational scale and scope; thus, they are programs and not “strategic projects.” 
 
This seminar is suitable for those who want to learn practical leadership concepts for turning strategic intent into action. The primary objective is to provide proven leadership practices, skills, and insights specific to strategic initiative programs. Participants will exit the seminar with tools, perspective, and confidence to make instant, positive contributions to their organization. Using case discussions, video clips, and real-world examples of strategic initiatives, this class will help you acquire an executive and strategic mindset. 
 
Pre-Work: 1.0 hours.

What You Will Learn

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

  • Recognize the distinctive leadership competencies of program managers (compared to project managers)
  • Identify the four LIDS leadership roles for a program manager
  • Recognize how the BREAD model defines the five performance domains of program management
  • Recognize the characteristics of good strategy and align programs with strategy
  • Use metrics to “tell a story” about benefits realization
