There are many definitions of what strategy is, many focus on competitive advantage, sustainable growth, superior performance, and organizational goals and objectives. Most conversations target how to define a winning strategy, but few spend little time discussing execution. This event is designed to bridge the gap between strategy leadership, those defining strategy, and execution professionals, those skilled and experienced in bringing big ideas to life.




  • Understanding what strategy can be and how it can be developed.
  • Understanding why strategies fail, and how project managers can improve success.
  • Provide project managers insight into their position in executing strategy at all levels of an organization.
  • Understanding the balancing of strategic project portfolios.
