Transition & Transformation Project Management

Transition & Transformation Project Management

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Current and prospective project and programme managers responsible for management and coordination of transition and transformation initiatives.

Synopsis

Today’s dynamically changing environment – the development of technology, increasing customer requirements, and competition – requires organisations to embrace greater flexibility and efficiency. Where the changes required are significant, companies may initiate complex change programmes. These programmes can be transitional – for example, how do we do what we do better and more efficiently? or how do we move into new geographies or market sectors? – or they can be transformational – do any of those things but, in doing so, become something different. Transitional programmes are complex but predictable; transformational programmes, by their very nature, are unpredictable but can release enormous untapped potential. Both forms of programme require a broad range of management and leadership skills. These skills can be learned and developed.
The main aim of the workshop is to prepare both current and prospective project and programme managers for the management and coordination of transition and transformation initiatives. The workshop programme has been devided into two parts. The first focuses on the transition and transformation management and the second on the project management.
