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.
About this course
The aim of this unit is for leaders to undertake a strategic management project of their own choosing. To achieve this outcome leaders will develop a business case, propose research design to inform the project’s direction and recommend project management methods and tools to structure the delivery of the project. Leaders will report on project outcomes and reflect on the skills and behaviours which ultimately influence the success of the strategic management project.
