Program Experience

Completing projects on time, on budget and on specification is critical to business success. Whereas projects are our means to execute strategies and react to changes in the competitive landscape, the capability to carry out project management effectively is no longer an option.

Success with critical projects hinges on developing an understanding of the types of complexities you’re likely to encounter within the projects, from their structure and scope to the changing nature of the project, to the power and political dynamics within the project team and in wider stakeholder communities.

The Leading Complex Projects program was created to help you strengthen your understanding of these complexities and learn to lead through them to drive successful outcomes.

Evaluate and monitor performance in complex projects to achieve business objectives
