According to Ken Blanchard, the key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority. Influence is a critical component of leveraging effective partnerships and increasing engagement and enablement for our projects and the change they deliver. The challenge we are faced with, that we will look to solve in this webinar, is to more easily identify, build and support our organizational influencers to make them a vital part of project delivery.
As certified PMPs, one of our hallmarks is to be able to control scope, manage the schedule, and deliver project requirements on budget. But it is far too often that, although a project is successful in meeting scope, its projected benefits are lacking. The gap between charter and scope can result in significant unforeseen covert constraints to project impact. This leads to a variety of impact issues, ranging from the need for additional sub projects, funding, and configuration change to project management creditability and stakeholder management drama. Closing the Charter Gap is the validation of requirements against benefits and the business case to ensure that the end-product will deliver the financial, service, and cultural result it was envisioned to achieve.
