Large Project Team Alignment
What it is: Teams managing large projects, such as building a mine or implementing an organization-wide IT system, are often challenged to keep on schedule and budget. Aligning project stakeholders and the team is critical in making a project a standout success. We offer customized alignment workshops for large projects that result in greater team performance.
Best for: Teams responsible for a project where there are many stakeholders and several different phases that the project will move through over a number time. These can include planning, development and handover to the business.
Time frame: Initial alignment workshops are typically two days in length, with preparation and follow up work. To sustain the effort, teams often schedule follow up alignment workshops for every 90 days – these are 1-2 days depending on what the team is dealing with at the time.
Results: Clarity on what will make the project a success; Specific plans for closing gaps and taking advantages of opportunities; Less friction in the team; Sustained team performance. Teams that have worked through this process often report that it was a turning point for them in their performance as vital issues were resolved and plans put in place.
