You know the transformation your business needs – now what? Managing business transformation projects links strategy to operations. This is how you execute the change. This is the difference between a company that wants to change and a company that can change. This is the discipline of implementing significant, sustainable change to people, process, and technology across an enterprise.
If you are an aspiring management consultant, business manager, or technical manager who wants to be the one they come to when it’s time to move past talking about change and turn activity into progress, then this course will give you the insights and skills to apply business process improvement methodology, project business case analysis, and primarily formal project management to effectively sponsor and lead the execution of business transformation projects.
Our study will take us through case studies of successful and unsuccessful projects in a variety of industries, a framework, practical techniques, guest speakers from industry, and lab exercises with specific software tools. Evaluation will be based on a team project and individual essays. You will ultimately take with you a toolbox of templates and other resources that you can directly apply to future real projects.
