This workshop addresses two topics: Strategic Planning and Contracting Awareness. It is for anyone performing or managing projects in a business environment.
The AM session: We will discuss Strategic Planning, a critical skill that impacts the overall success or failure of any business endeavor. We will examine strategic planning tools and methodologies and their strengths, weaknesses, and application to overall portfolio management in an interactive session.
The PM session: We will discuss Contracting Awareness. In today's outsourcing environment, contract terms and conditions also affect the success or failure of your project. The project manager, although often not directly involved in the legal side of negotiations, should understand contract options well enough to be a value-add to those discussions. The project manager must ensure that the company's interests are being protected at every step in the process. We will discuss contract types, their risks and benefits, and how they apply to your environment.
