Aligning Projects to the Business Strategy
Vincent De Waele, Business Consultant, Belgium, Member
Presuming you know the business strategy, I see following challenges to align your projects with the strategy:
- Identifying which strategy your project will benefit and how<.br>
- Between all the projects supporting one particular strategy, understand the desirability of every project as well as its feasibility.
- Defining the sequence of your projects (based on the previous topic) and see if this still fits your strategy.
- In projects selection, balancing short term opportunistic projects with long term strategic projects.
 

 
Aligning Projects with Strategy
Steven Balima
Major alignment problems of projects with strategy are:
- Getting it right the first time (starting projects that are executing business or corporate level overall strategy)
- Identifying the reason (what is the project for? Is it to increase profit, make workforce feel needed? Or grow the business?)
- Establishing the starting point (if we embark on a project, it must be to execute a strategy).
