Balancing Strategic and Tactical Planning

In enterprise organizations, the development and implementation of a new program is a high-stakes venture.

Although program initiatives enable access to important opportunities, the risks can be intimidating. Time, budget spend, organizational focus—it all adds up and creates a scenario in which careful and thoughtful organizational leadership is critical to program success.
