How Project Work Gets Done

Innovation. Performance. Scalability. The ability to hone in on these areas can create competitive advantage in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) business environment. To address these initiatives and ensure their success, companies need to empower their leaders and managers with the tools, resources and insights to execute their strategies consistently and reliably in the midst of continuous business change.

Building Blocks for Strategic Execution


The building blocks for strategic execution are projects, those activities put in place alongside regular operations to achieve specific goals. New businesses, products, services, channels and markets are created through project-based work.

Programs + Portfolios

When grouped together, closely related projects are referred to as a program. In turn, the overall set of programs is your company’s portfolio, the strategies in which your company is choosing to invest.

Strategic Alignment  

Achieving alignment and maximizing performance of project-based work is critical to successfully executing the strategies your company has identified to deliver on key initiatives.

Adaptive Execution

Business today requires project leaders to think more strategically and move away from only using processes and procedures to get work done, and instead solve business problems by using adaptive skill sets. This concept of adaptive execution is permeating organizations across the globe.

Getting Work Done
