Description This subject teaches students the importance of aligning projects with the business strategy. Strategic alignment is a two-way process. Overall business strategy guides project planning, and, in turn, project success drives enterprise strategy. Students understand the bigger-picture goals, how to identify what is being accomplished and why, and how to achieve goals. Other topics include measuring project success and portfolio and program management.
