Failing to plan is planning to fail!
At PM Academy we advocate the alignment of all projects to the organisation’s strategic vision. Without clarity on the organisation’s vision, objectives and goals, projects are destined not to deliver the desired business benefits. We offer world class facilitator services to assist organisations during the planning process.
To ensure that you accurately define the scope, schedule, budget and goals on your next project let PM Academy assist you in planning your next project. Together with your project team and key stakeholders, PM Academy facilitates project planning sessions to get your projects planned right first time, every time.
We follow our 6 step PPFacilitate methodology below when conducting Strategic Planning facilitation:
Facilitation Planning : A Project Charter / Project Initiation Document is produced detailing the scope of the contract. Our methodology ensures that all parties are prepared in advance for the strategic planning session. We meet with key stakeholders to get a thorough understanding of the environment and objectives for the strategic planning workshop.
Facilitation can either be based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) , PRINCE2® or Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®). A Facilitation plan is articulated and all documentation is signed-off by the client and PM Academy.
Conduct Facilitation : Based on our 6 step PPFacilitate methodology the Strategic Planning sessions are facilitated with the identified programme or project stakeholders. The sessions are conducted using a variety of tools and techniques obtaining the maximum participation from attendees and keeping the sessions focussed on delivering on the objectives.
