The SPL Principles
Background and Objective
Organizations spend billions in creating brilliant strategies and yet studies suggest that less than 10% of effectively formulated strategies carry through to successful implementation. Senior leaders in organization have to deeply engage with project management, the organization systems that surround it and the behaviors and terminology required to lead strategic transformations. Most strategic initiatives today are unpredictable, changing, and involve a great deal of uncertainty and complexity; as a result, these initiatives/projects today often do not achieve their business results or are not aligned with their company’s strategy.
The traditional approach to project management is rarely addressing these problems and it seems that a more modern approach is needed on top of what we know from the traditional body of knowledge. This research-based industry-proven practical seminar is designed to add this perspective.
Strategic Project Leadership®
Strategic Project Leadership® is a new approach to project management that focuses projects and programs on creating value, competitive advantage, and winning in the marketplace, rather than just meeting time and budget objectives. This one-day executive seminar discusses the new role of executives who are required to guide project managers to be leaders that look at the global business aspects of their projects and provide vision and inspiration to their project teams.
The seminar is based on two central concepts, first, that one size does not fit all projects and you need a flexible and adaptive approach. And second, that project must be managed to achieve business results. It introduces a comprehensive framework and hierarchy of five components, which need to be applied by project leaders during project planning and execution: strategy, spirit, organization, process, and tools. It then presents a list of practical principles for implementation of the SPL approach in the organization.
