We present Strategic Project Leadership (SPL), which was built on the foundation of traditional project management during twenty years of research and work with corporations, dozens of studies and five PhD dissertations. SPL helps organizations deal with their projects in a flexible and adaptive way, and focus their projects on business results by creating value, competitive advantage, and winning in the marketplace. This integrated, industry-proven, and PMI award-winning approach combines the business-related needs, the operational aspects of getting the job done, and the leadership perspective of inspiring and motivating the team. We use lessons from several famous AD programs to show how project leaders can integrate Strategic Project Leadership into their current practices by building new skills on top of the PMP and the PMBOKGuide areas.
