The Basics of Project Leadership (BPL)

Influencing Ongoing Positive Change in Your Organization

Project Leadership (PLDSHP) has recently evolved from a management philosophy, restricted to a few functional areas and regarded as something nice to have, to an enterprise Project Leadership system, affecting every functional unit of the organization. Project Leadership has evolved into a business process, rather than merely a Project Management process. More and more organizations are now regarding Project Leadership as being mandatory for the survival of the firm. Project Leadership is here to stay.
