Every business leader wants to do the right thing, from the unit supervisor all the way up to the CEO. But there are so many priorities, so many alternatives, so much noise. And, more often than not, many of those leaders are not aware that their peers are doing and asking for the same thing or something very similar.
But, what if an executive could “see” the changes, “see” the impacts, “see” the pros and cons? What if program and project planning could start a little further upstream, a little closer to “strategy” than “execution”? Like a home builder needs an architect, the business needs an architect too. And your business architect has a great tool in their belt … a capability map.
Today, Eric is going to chat about one of the most valuable services a business architect can do for their sponsor … envision and prioritize strategy-aligned initiatives. Working backward from the PMO intake, we’ll chart a path through decisions, alternatives, organizing change, all the way back to the constant stream of business demand.
