Sheridan Faculty of Business Professor Dr. Wael Ramadan has been busy educating Project Management and Human Resource professionals about the need to continuously adapt and restructure in order to survive and grow in his recent speeches to Human Resources Professional Association of Toronto (HRPA) and the South Western chapter of Project Management Institute. Ramadan says that strategic management is an art of survival and project management is an output of this creative art. It is crucial to understand the link between project management and strategic management and its implications for project managers in order to enable the successful completion of project objectives.
Professor Ramadan’s latest book The Asset That Money Can’t Buy: The Influence of Organizational Culture on Sustainable Competitive Advantage of SMEs, World-Class Status, and Region asserts that Strategic management is an art of survival.
“A talent gap has developed in many economies as there are simply not enough trained project managers to go around. Within many organizations, a project management position is seen as a highway to an executive position,” said professor Ramadan.
Dr. Ramadan’s next speech will be delivered to the Project Management Institute, Southern Ontario chapter January 16, 2014.
