PMINAC September Virtual Mtg - Strategic Project Governance 2.0 with Phil Weinzimer

PMINAC Sept2020


TOPIC: Strategic Project Governance 2.0- A Leadership Initiative for PMO Directors and Project Managers

A recent study by MIT/CapGemini identified Governance as a major obstacle to successfully execute Digital Transformation efforts that seek to leverage technology as a strategic asset. As a result, the significant increase in technology-driven project requests that focus to enhance customer value, improve operational processes, and re-engineer business models are at risk to negatively impact business success if you have an ineffective or immature project, process, and leadership excellence model. Tactical governance processes in these three areas need to be aligned with a mature strategic project governance model that reduces enterprise risk, ensures total alignment in project selection/execution, and enables the business to accomplish its strategy, goals, and objectives. This presentation will provide you with a new Strategic Project Governance Model 2.0, methodology framework, case study examples, maturity assessment tool, and an implementation approach to improve your strategic project governance competency.



1. How can a Project, Process, and Leadership Governance Model minimize business risk, successfully identify and align projects to business strategy, and enable business goals be achieved?

2. What are the dimensions to measure the maturity of a Governance model and how to self-assess your company’s IT Project, Process, and Leadership Governance Model using a best-in-class assessment tool?

3. How can I self-assess my organization's Strategic Project Governance Maturity for project, process, and leadership excellence and compare your results with all assessment respondents?

4.  How can I access workshop materials to use in my organization to develop/mature their Strategic Project governance competency in project, process, and leadership excellence?

5. Why a Strategic Project governance model in project, process, and leadership excellence requires a business unit and IT organization partnership leads to business success?

6. What are the 20 best-in-class critical components that business and IT organization need to succeed to develop a mature Strategic Project governance project, process, and leadership excellence model will improve your organizations collaboration competency?

7. How can your organization use an assessment tool to measure the maturity in Strategic Project, process, and leadership governance and improve the maturity of your PMO Governance competency
