Strategic Thinking: A Rare and Valuable Competency
PMO Leaders must interact with executives on the topics of both operations and strategy. The ability to think strategically — and to show it — is a critical task for effectiveness. One reason is that it is better to craft strategy that is good, powerful, clever, coherent, strong, and nuanced (rather than strategy that is bad, weak, stupid, incoherent, and generic). It is critical that PMO leaders be able to suggest appropriate metrics, benefits statements, and problem-solving approaches for both the operational domain and the strategic domain.
