Organizations are complex structures which must evolve and grow to succeed for the long term. People working within organizations need clear direction and are motivated by an understanding of the organization’s mission and long-term goals, and the best way to achieve them. 

Project managers and business analysts are in unique positions in their organizations to help develop, support and advance short- and long-term goals. Project professionals understand how to enable change and often work with employees at every level and in every department/division.

  • Who creates this plan? How is the plan created?
  • How is the plan communicated?
  • Why and how should Project Managers and Business Analysts be involved?
