OREM, Utah–April 30, 2009–In the current issue of CEO Today, Scott Johnson, CEO and founder of AtTask (http://attask.co.uk), the world’s most popular project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, discusses bridging corporate strategy and project execution–allowing business leaders to validate initiatives undertaken at the project level.
CEO Today is distributed to CEOs and senior-level executives in leading public and privately held organizations throughout the U.K. Johnson, an acknowledged expert in project management, is an engaging speaker and consultant to businesses and organizations that want to maximize their resources and focus efforts on initiatives that best accomplish organizational and financial goals. Johnson has previously been featured in such publications as CIO Magazine, Business Management Magazine, PM Network, and Business Week.
“The biggest challenge for business leaders in the world today, is making certain that initiatives undertaken at the project level are aligned with the strategic and financial goals of their organizations,” says Johnson. “For a project and portfolio management solution to provide real value, it should include a formalized request process, demand management, and project prioritization and selection that effectively bridges the strategic goals of executives and the implementation and execution deliverables of project teams.”
