In my last article, we talked about what Leaders need to do to facilitate successful and sustainable change initiatives to support the implementation of the organisation’s overall strategy. Typically change in organisations can be strategic (e.g. new visions, new strategy and goals, new leaders or owners) or operational (e.g. new organisation structure, methods, tools, new products or services).
As part of the strategy implementation, key initiatives and projects are identified to support the achievement of the desired outcomes. Lack of project management skills has been identified as one of the top three key reasons why strategies are not well implemented.
