La conférence sera donnée en anglais par Raymond Young.
Top managers seldom consider project management to be a matter of direct concern but unless they are directly involved, projects rarely succeed and the organisations strategy will not be implemented. This is dysfunctional and evidence will be presented to show projects seldom contribute to strategy. Then a case study will be presented to show how dysfunctional relationship can be addressed. The case is of the Defence Science and Technology Group, the second largest research organisation in Australia, and the initiative studied is the implementation of their EPMO. The case may be at the leading edge of benefits management practice because it focuses on the delivery of 'the benefit' [ie. Strategy] rather than 'a benefit'.
