PMiA May – Choosing the right projects

Choosing the Right Projects

All organisations should have a long term plan. Where do you want the organisation to be in 3 years’ time?
As we all know, managing projects is hard and risky work. If you are going to do projects, you had better make sure that they move you closer to where you want to be at the end of your plan, to justify the effort.

No matter how small or large your organisation, resources are limited. It is critical to use those resources only on projects that align with your strategy.
How are you going? Are you choosing your projects or are they choosing you?

Come along as we discuss some simple processes, tools and techniques to ensure that you maximise the alignment of the projects that you undertake.
