Strategy of an organisation 8hours

Strategy of an organisation is a clear example of a set of formal, explicit and present drivers of projects, programmes and portfolios. The Strategy (Perspective 1) generally has clear goals and objectives and, more often than not, projects and programmes contribute to these goals and objectives, while project and programme portfolios are prioritised according to these goals and objectives. 

The purpose of the Strategy competence element is to understand the strategy and its strategic processes, and thus enable a certain management perspective (project, programme or portfolio) to manage their programme within the contextual aspects.
