Course Overview

The dynamic nature of the modern business environment means that traditional project management metrics such as time, cost, and scope are no longer sufficient indicators of success.

To create long-term sustainable value for organizations, a strategic approach and a shift towards project leadership is required.

Strategic projects are those that have large-scale impact, requiring management that goes beyond the basics to help you adapt to unexpected change and contribute towards business objectives.

The Oxford Leading Strategic Projects Programme teaches you to effectively combine business strategy, leadership skills, and project management techniques to help guide your team through modern- day complexity in order to prosper from new opportunities. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll discover the benefits of strategic project leadership and equip yourself with the necessary tools to implement upfront planning to respond to potential business risks within today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world.

Key Takeaways

A set of personalised leadership skills to help you guide teams through uncertainty to successful project delivery.
Tools to manage potential project risks, capitalize on opportunities, and achieve organisational objectives.
The ability to respond to complexities faced when dealing with people, power, and politics.
Guidance from leading industry experts and Oxford Saïd faculty and unlimited access to both the official Oxford Executive Education Alumni group on LinkedIn and 2U’s Career Engagement Network, offering you exclusive resources and events to support your professional journey and drive your career forward.
