Strategic issues in project management

By using the concept of strategic issues when managing projects, project managers can identify and manage those factors and forces that can significantly affect an organization's future tactics. This article describes an approach for assessing and managing the strategic issues that project teams face when implementing projects. In doing so, it discusses how strategic issues alter the way organizations realize projects; it also identifies eight patterns of managerial relationships that impact strategic issues. It discusses case studies showing the impact of successful and failed efforts to manage strategic issues and examines this concept in relation to 11 issues affecting the nuclear-plant construction industry, issues such as licensability, passive safety, power costs, waste management, advocacy, and environment, among others.
