CMI Unit 712 Leading Strategic Management Projects

A fundamental part of a leader’s role is to develop and lead strategic management projects. Tailored to the long-term aims of the organisation, projects may focus on opportunities for organisational growth, development or the management of change. Projects may explore identified problems or weaknesses. They may be designed to create dynamic new opportunities in the competitive marketplace, explore new ways of working or build capabilities. Ultimately a strategic management project should add value to the organisation.

Project management methodologies, research methodologies, strategic thinking, planning, project implementation.

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for facilitating our dry run yesterday and I hope you got your car out with-out too much hassle and delay! It was great to finally meet you and the work you had already done provided a solid brief to the exercise. As with any theory it was right to put it into practice and I think we took away some tips that will improve further the smooth running and key outcomes for the sessions"
