Thinking Strategically and Acting Tactically

vggg9B strategic tactical vB - SG lowerres

Project management traditionally focuses on tactical work such as the detailed planning and execution of tasks. Strategic work deals with the business reasons for doing projects. Tactical and strategic concerns are often compartmentalized and handled separately.

However, project management professionals are increasingly addressing a combination of both. They're thinking strategically while concurrently executing projects tactically, and that approach helps facilitate short- and long-term success.

Our partners at Exceptional PPM and PMO Solutions have a downloadable infographic which covers the topic of thinking strategically and acting tactically for project management success. The file is located

Typically, many things need to be in place and go right in order for change (such as a project) to be successful. Based on the Knoster Model for Managing Complex Change, the image above identifies five elements—vision, skills, incentives, resources, and action plan—which are required for effective change. As shown, without all five components, the outcome is less than successful. You may find the model to be helpful when thinking about a new project.
