What I offer
Without the ability to reliably and predictably transform your organisation, the opportunities offered by the Digital Enterprise are left untapped. Project management too often underestimates the impact on people and the power of culture, leading to unrealised benefits, a disillusioned workforce and a frustrated IT team.
I bridge the gaps. I recognise the opportunity, but understand the concerns, motivations and culture of the workforce. I supplement the project delivery talent in your organisation with the required interventions that turn an unused capability into a core capability.
Good leadership is the difference between a positive workforce embracing the innovation, and an angry team that won’t move. Discarding the simplistic fixes of self-help books and LinkedIn posts, I can help you identify the right skills to practice, and find an honest approach that uses your strengths.
I guide on communicating, understanding your followers’ drivers for motivation, resolving conflict and building the right network for success.
The delivery of complete transformational programmes of work is about more than project plans and risk registers. I understand that transformation is about marrying the goals of the project to the realities of the enterprise.
I dedicate time and effort to engaging and managing the political environment surrounding the change; developing and sustaining the critical mass of support; engaging stakeholders for action, not recognition.
Establishing a business readiness capability every time you deliver a project is time consuming, squanders valuable lessons from previous engagements and loses the momentum of a change engaged team.
I can establish a permanent change capability within your organisation, tailored to the unique DNA of your team. As well as delivering a framework and standards, I identify where your company culture inhibits change readiness and deliver interventions to realise an Agile Organisation, making the next changes ones your workforce embraces.
