As part of our support to the best practice management community, we have written blogs, presented webinars and created videos. Please view these and let us have your comments and suggestions.
One of the major reasons why change initiatives fail to deliver benefits, is lack of clearly defined roles and responsibilities. Furthermore, different methodologies use different names of the same roles. We have provided a comparison of the terminologies used and our suggestion of what would be appropriate in an organisation. Ultimately, it is the organisation's choice.
Within several organisations, there is still a confusion on whether an initiative can be managed as part of business-as-usual, or does it need to be managed as a project or a programme. We have provided a simple explanation on the selection approach.
Regardless of whether an initiative is being managed as business-as-usual, a project or a programme, principles of programme management should be followed. Please find a discussion on the the key element of these principles.
All organisations are undergoing change of some sort, this can range from a single process to an entirely new way of working. With all the experience that is available, you would have thought that organisations would be delivering successful changes, unfortunately that is not the case. Please find our suggestions on a structured approach to change initiatives.
