Project & Change Management
Why do Transformation Programmes fail?
Many projects suffer with change fatigue and a lack of buy in from key stakeholders. This is often down to lack of communication, disjointed actions and decisions as well as a lack of oversight and management.
How do you successfully mobilise and deliver a Transformation Programme?
There are a number of key components which should be in place to enable successful delivery of a programme of work. These include, sound governance, change control mechanisms, engaged project delivery teams, an experienced programme management office, approved review methodology, benefits capture and realisation mechanisms and regular reporting. All in parallel to frequent and relevant communications and engagement with key stakeholders.
What is the value of a joined-up approach?
The key components of programme management ensure greater buy in, enhance chances of success and allow warning signals to be flagged up in a timely manner to allow a change of course or tact.
At C.Co we believe that project management isn’t all about paperwork and process, it’s about timely results and altered mindsets. We don’t take a one size fits all methodology, we adapt to suit the circumstances of the work, ensuring the scale of project management is scaled to the individual project and that all outputs are focussed and targeted to achieve your aims and objectives.
Most importantly, we work with you and your staff – integrating with your in-house team to utilise and develop the skills already in place, as well as constantly assessing the impacts of organisational culture and the changes that will be required to ensure the smooth and successful implementation of any project.
Our team are fully qualified project and programme managers as well change management practitioners, and are comfortable using a range of methodologies including MSP, PRINCE2 and AGILE.
