Today, project management is a critical step in creating a management culture not only in business, but in government too. Since the end of 2016, the Russian Government has launched a number of priority projects, which are designed to provide tangible social and economic benefits for the majority of citizens in an environment where administrative, human, and financial resources are limited. The implementation of these projects requires transparent management, efficiency, sound decision-making, and high-quality planning, which can all be guaranteed by applying project management principles.
How can priority projects be incorporated into the strategic development agenda? What experience can the regions offer in developing strategic plans and implementing them in practice? How can unviable strategies be avoided? How will the project management and public administration system evolve in the future?
On the eve of EEF 2019 , Alexander Kozlov , minister for the development of the Russian Far East and the Arctic, sat down with us to discuss the results of the past few years and went into detail about the ministry s plans for the near future.
