From that analysis, you’ll present your findings to the executives (role-played by your instructor) and persuade them to adopt more effective project management processes for the organization. Then you’ll design a project program with multiple components that affect every department. You’ll complete the strategic planning and persuade the executives to adopt your program recommendation. Next you will work with the executives to prioritize all the projects in the organization’s portfolio and allocate resources based those priorities. In the final presentation, you’ll persuade the executives to cancel certain projects so the portfolio is in balance and is achievable.
