It is common that organizations design strategic projects to implement their strategy. However, most of the time they tend to fail with it. The reason for this, I argue, is that projects alone will not be able to deliver the results needed for the implementation of the strategy. There is a need for a larger process of synchronizing initiatives, assignments, tasks and projects that would help to achieve the strategic goals and to make the change possible. The organization should rather establish strategic programs which, on their part, would establish projects that would take the organization to the position set in the strategy. But this is such a difficult and uncertain task. My question here is why is it so?
