A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of conducting a webinar with the SVP of Marketing at Innotas, Tushar Patel, where we had some fun around the topic: “10 Signs You Need to Reinvent Your PMO.”
I do not know about you, but in my 30+ years in business at the various companies where I have worked, it has been the rare exception that the senior leaders have clearly articulated and reinforced the business strategy.
Maybe this was because they did not have a solid strategy. Perhaps this was because developing a solid business strategy is hard, executives felt that developing the strategy was the real task, the organizations were so big that it was hard to cascade the communications down to the front line, or they felt that they only needed to communicate it several times for it to stick. None of these are justifiable excuses, but that is a topic for another day.
