Project Managers must improve their strategic business management skills
if they are to succeed in a globally competitive information rich environment.
This session will help you understand the difference between a competency
and skill, the required competencies and skills, the associated best practices,
and how to measure and identify gaps.
- The consumerization of IT is forcing companies to develop
new products and services at a dramatically increasing rate. As a result,
there is a dramatic increase in project requests to the IT organization and
the need to deliver projects quickly and with higher quality.
- These information rich projects, which involve new and
enhanced products, associated services, as well as improved internal process
solutions, require Project Managers and IT personnel to collaborate in business
teams to more clearly define business requirements and reduce development
time. As a result, Project Managers must lead IT and business teams to ensure
successful project delivery.
