Document and Debate Culture focuses on good thinking through writing. Used to develop a long term strategic plan, a more detailed operating plan, or an individual project, the writing process can align projects to priorities, facilitate debate, provide clear project objectives, create greater stakeholder support, and realize strategic benefits. These tools can be used by project managers, PMOs, and teams in strategic, annual, and operations planning. The result is better execution, and increased benefits realization.
This session takes a look at the principles behind Document and Debate Culture, best practices, challenges, and real-world experiences for delivering on projects and strategic objectives.
