PREMIUM webinar

Culture is equally important as a winning strategy required for successful advancement for implementation of a project. The PMI Pulse of Profession Report 2015 findings demonstrate a clear path forward through a focus on the following fundamentals, which are the underpinning factors in Project Management Systems leading to success. * Culture: High-performing organizations fully understand the value of project management and creating a project management mindset. * Talent: High-performing organizations are significantly more likely to focus on talent management, establishing ongoing training, and formal, effective knowledge transfer. This is especially important in project management, where technical skills are enhanced by the leadership and strategic and business management capabilities that are nurtured through experience. * Process: High-performing organizations support project, program, and portfolio management through standardized practices and by aligning projects and programs to the organization’s goal. Participants will learn: a) Foundations for PM Culture b) PM Culture Constituents c) Maximizing factors d) Benefits achieved with Culture
