Presentation Abstract: Congratulations! You are a Project Manager! Whether this is your first project, or you are seasoned with a successful history of getting things done, you know that your ability to maneuver around the obstacles is dependent on the relationship between your project goals and the value of your results to the organization. It is critically important to understand the business impact of your decisions.

The project manager who can quickly comprehend and communicate the business value of the project elevates themselves in the eyes of management. They can provide the information needed for decision making at the strategic level.

This discussion will focus on the business perspective of project management and some of the tools used to measure success in this area. By harmonizing your project goals with stakeholder expectations, you will lead your teams to greater and greater success!
