A strong start
strategic thinking, leadership skills and business acumen can help a project team hit the ground running
Effective projects start by deciding where they will end. Clearly marking the finish line helps team members keep their eyes on the prize -- and make sure they're moving in the right direction. Project initiation processes help unify the team by defining the path, purpose and parameters of the project. They clarify the end goal from the beginning and get buy-in from everyone involved.
