After conducting industry surveys with numerous employers, the Project Management Institute (PMI) has recognized a gap in understanding between Project Managers and overall company level or program level interdependencies.  Employers indicated that too many of them were not successfully completing projects that were profitable to the company.  Even some projects that look profitable on the project budget may in fact be a loss to the company.



Furthermore, many Project Managers have not been able to demonstrate proficiency with respect to other functions beyond the project such as strategic planning and business development.  It is no longer sufficient to simply manage one project without awareness of the behind the scenes understanding of how the company operates.



As a result, PMI now requires a minimum of 8 Professional Development Units (PDU) or 8 Contact Hours to be focused on Strategic Planning and/or Business Development.  The PMBA provides 8 contact hours to satisfy both the Strategic Planning element and Business Administration element in just one course. 



At the completion of this course, attendees will be better able to lead teams in Strategic Planning efforts, have a positive impact on the profitability of the company, and thus demonstrate more value to the company as an employee.



By the end of this course, students will be able to:


  • Demonstrate an understanding of a Strategic Plan

  • Contrast a Strategic Plan and an Implementation Plan

  • Select the appropriate tools for Strategic Planning

  • Identify threats and opportunities during all stages of a project

  • Translate execution strategies to individual accountability

  • Reduce hidden costs to projects such as cost of working capital

  • Implement Program or Company level purchasing plans

  • Mitigate claims and litigation

  • Satisfy clients to ensure future projects

  • Position the company for higher fees on future projects

  • Leverage your project performance into job security

  • Make yourself priceless to your company
