Product Description

Organizations often focus on short-term results, such as immediate financial goals. However, projects are expected to achieve results that link back to an organization’s overall business strategy. This apparent discrepancy led researchers to ask: What does it mean to link project management strategy to business strategy?

In Linking Project Management to Business Strategy, researchers were guided by the hypothesis: If projects are successful in aligning their efforts with the business strategy, they will better contribute to the long-term goals of the organization.

From the Inside Flap

Strategic alignment is a two-way process. Overall business strategy informs project planning and in turn, project success impacts enterprise success. Strategic alignment of a project takes into account strategic focus, operational efficiency and team leadership. The extent to which a project is focused on each dimension determines the level of "strategic maturity" for a given project. Research has shown that higher levels of strategic maturity are associated with higher levels of project success. Table of Contents
