Seminar Description

Topics: Business Skill Enhancement, Strategic Planning and Implementation

Sub-Topics: Benefits Realization, Portfolio Management

To compete in the future, project managers will need to be able to “connect the dots” between projects, project management practices, and their company's business practices. In short, they must develop their project business-savvy in addition to their technical savvy. In this informative, content-intensive seminar, participants will gain a considerable head start on the path to enhancing their project-related business-savvy. Participants will “roll up their sleeves,” through in a comprehensive case study (including practice on their own laptops!) that is woven throughout the program. Hands-on competency-building, business-centric case study activities include:
  • Project portfolio evaluation and ranking
  • Project business case preparation
  • Project financial analysis [ROI calculations]
  • ROI-based sensitivity analysis [business risk analysis]
  • ROI-based scope change analysis

Pre-Work: 1.0 hours.
