E77 Zen and the Art of Strategic Alignment with Stuart Easton
Are you working on the proper projects within your organization? Why do we even do projects in an organization? So much time in Project Management is spent trying to improve project execution and not as much on project selection and strategic alignment. In this episode we take a deep dive on Strategic Alignment and Portfolio Management with Stuart Easton CEO of Transparent Choice.
Stuart and PMO Joe share several anecdotes from their experiences which highlight the importance of understanding the value and purpose for project selection and strategic alignment. It doesn't work to try to do every project. We do projects to achieve our business goals. The art of strategic alignment is to get the leadership team to own the decision making process and to agree on the overall business goals and portfolio priority.
Stuart provides several tools and techniques to help us improve our ability to prioritize strategic portfolios. One technique used within the Transparent Choice solution is AHP, Analytic Hierarchy Process. The process helps you define and quantify the value you are going to deliver to the organization.
