Project Managers as Strategy Drivers: How Strategic Leadership Accelerates PM Careers and ROI for Organizations
Project managers are taking center stage, are you ready? In today's ever-evolving business landscape, project managers are not just taskmasters; they are the architects of strategic success. Join us in our upcoming webinar, "Project Managers as Strategy Drivers: How Strategic Leadership Accelerates Careers and ROI for Organizations," where we will unravel the dynamic synergy between project management and executive leadership.
Sustainability has become a key parameter for organizations and this means that projects and operations have to be planned and implemented with this objective. At the project level it may be difficult to bring in sustainability initiatives because often times the scope of the project is already determined or it is contractual. To get a sustainability perspective one has to consider it beyond a project outcome and further this needs to be addressed by senior management. Therefore, an organizational level approach would be more appropriate.
