With any change, large or small, it’s important to ensure that everyone involved is collaborating well, understands what they need to do and how the journey is progressing. Project and programme management is about defining well enough what needs to happen, how it will be delivered and then allowing everyone involved to play their part in making it happen.
The skill here is to have just enough structure to avoid descending into chaos but not so much that it stifles innovation and creative thinking. It’s about creating great teams, that function well, embrace diversity, innovate safely and fundamentally work well together. When delivered effectively, project management is almost invisible and in evidence purely by the visible delivery of progress towards the goals the organisation has set itself.
