SIM Detroit: Managing to Prevent Project Failure (Tue. 20 Jan, 2015 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

Managing to Prevent Project Failure

Projects fail due to lack of direction from leaders. Leaders define vision. A business turns vision into value. CIOs build the capabilities that transform businesses. Ergo, CIOs are enablers for turning vision into value. The tool to deliver that vision is the project. If a CIO is going to excel, they must flawlessly execute projects.

To achieve this, CIOs, like you, must build value-driven organizations that are seasoned yet adaptive, structured yet agile, pragmatic yet innovative. It is not a simple feat.

To understand the need to stick to the four core principles (reading and adhering to corporate strategy, project alignment, initiative prioritization, and disseminating the plan to your organization), this keynote will show that:

  • An IT strategy that meets corporate goals must drive all of your work.
  • Work cannot start until the people to complement the strategy are in place.
  • Processes need to fit the individual projects (not too lean, not to heavy, and sized for each project).
  • To achieve success, certain key areas of your organization and your projects are more important to monitor.
  • The four tenents help you focus on building and leading powerful organizations that provide value, accelerate business growth, and make your IT group a strategic component of your company.
