How to increase ‘business’ success

In 5th series article on project successes and failures, Alan Stretton recommends more project management involvement in strategic planning

20 April 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – According to Alan Stretton in his latest article published in the April edition of the PM World Journal and added to the PM World Library this month, “In the project context, ‘business’ success – i.e. ‘doing the right projects right, time after time’ – has been directly related by several writers to the achievement of organizational strategic objectives… if the strategic formulation and planning processes are not ‘done right’, the chances are that one or more of the projects developed in these processes will not be the right project(s) to help achieve the strategic objectives… a primary strategy for increasing Level 3 success rates is to progressively increase project management involvement in organisational strategic planning, and thence into strategic management.”
