As an R.E.P., Strategy Management Group, Inc. is now delivering its unique Strategic Project Management offerings designed to empower students with the essential skills of modern project management within the context of a strategy-focused organization. This innovative approach to strategic project management takes traditional project management principles and practices to the next level to improve strategic alignment, inform resource allocation decisions, inform operational planning, and help mitigate risks.
