Project Challenge Conference

By: ICPMPublished on: 25/10/2012
Dr Liz Lee-Kelley and Dr Neil Turner presented "How to Set Up a Programme for Success" at the Project Challenge Conference held in London, 17th-18th October.  The content followed on from a two-year longitudinal study of eight major programmes around the UK and Europe (including key parts of the London 2012 Olympics) from which a systematic, though straightforward, approach to analysing programme initiation and delivery was developed.  They looked at three characteristics of the work; the technology, the business changes, and the people/behavioural change aspects.  By examining how much certainty you have in the programme objectives, approach, capability and capacity availability, sources of supply and deployment readiness as the programme progresses, you can us a simple set of matrices to determine any areas of concern.  This has now been tried in a wide variety of public and private-sector programmes, and users have found it to be a valuable way of driving the right discussins and asking the right questions of their programme.
