In today’s business environment, staying focused on a strategic path of work to be delivered to achieve the goals of an organization is key. Both external and internal factors can impact your path to strategy realization (new compliance regulations, emerging market trends, end of application support for a tier one business critical application, etc.). Successful management of these factors directly impacts your organization’s strategy and the portfolio of work which supports the strategy. This means business leaders need to focus on not only programs and projects, but the correct balance of operational work which supports current revenue streams. In other words, businesses often need help managing shifting priorities.
A properly laid foundation will allow teams to focus on the work they should be doing, all the while keeping track of available resources in-house and external needs. Cask brings the experience and expertise to help you build on that foundation to stay focused on your strategic path and build the governance process to monitor execution.
