Arising from the theory of disruptive Strategy which enables organizations to make innovation a reality and created by Clayton Christensen, managers have continued to increase their skills by expanding their knowledge in Project Management. In today’s environment, certainty of change is without precedent. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the use of projects as building blocks in the strategic management of the enterprise. Project, Program, and Portfolio Management is the principal means by which operational and strategic changes are managed in today’s organizations.
Projects can be described as; ad-hoc, resource-consuming activities used to implement organizational strategies, achieve enterprise goals and objectives, and contribute to the realization of the enterprises mission. Organizational projects get implemented through operational plans which are documents developed to guide the organization in a consistent fashion toward meeting its mission, objectives, and goals through designated strategies. Operational plans form the overarching policies, procedures, and practices for when and how project work will be accomplished.
Operational plans are designed to work with different project management methodologies. A project management methodology is essentially a set of guiding principles and processes for managing a project. The choice of methodology defines how you work and communicate. Further, the appropriate methodology for any project will depend on the project team, project-type, and project-scope. Choosing project management methodologies (PMM) is one of the first decisions you’ll have to make as a project manager. The methodology you pick will have a profound and ongoing impact on how you and your teams work. Different project management methodologies have their own pros and cons for different project types. Some are geared for speed, some for comprehensiveness.
This online Webinar will equip participants with the skills and techniques to develop skills in Project Design using Logical Framework to aid executive-level strategy, organize for innovation, and discover customer jobs to be done. The technique described in this webinar will help participants to identify Project design as one of the critical phases in the project life cycle. The success of a project largely depends on how well it was designed.
This Webinar provides the skills on the Logical Framework Approach (LFA), the method used to achieve high quality project standards. The participants will learn about the concepts underlying the Logical Framework approach and the main steps in the application of this method. The Webinar introduces the participants to a structured way of linking the objectives of the project to the needs of the stakeholders and identifying strategies to provide the desired results.
At the end of the Webinar, it is expected that participants will have been equipped with skills to:
