An introduction to transformation best practice

Copthorne Hotel, Armada Way, Plymouth PL1 1AR

Transformation can require people to look critically at what they think they know, to challenge long established ‘successful practices’ and their ‘beliefs’ in their organisations.

Successful change can only occur if a need to unlearn established techniques and embrace new ones is recognised and accepted.

As part of the workshop we will pull on practical case studies to illustrate the concepts to bring them to life.

The event will consider:

  • Differentiating portfolio, programme and project methods as change vehicles
  • Managing successful programmes – the transformational framework and how it can be applied to programmes and projects
  • Popular change models – ProSci, Agile and APM Group
  • Cores roles and structures in transformational change portfolios

Rod has been a pioneer of Managing Successful Programmes, having been involved with it since the launch in 1999. Over the lifetime of the framework he implemented it at the BBC, set up Aspire Europe Ltd as a consultancy dedicated to its development, developed it into an accredited MSP training company and in 2006 he was appointed Lead Author by the OGC for the 2007 version and has led the development of the 2011 version.

Rod Sowden is an experienced programme management consultant with a number of successful consulting and delivery assignments behind him that have left organisations with sustainable change. During this time he has seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to delivering effective change programmes and projects.

In 2008 he was appointed by the OGC and the APM Group as the lead author for the P3M3 (portfolio, programme, project management maturity model) 2008 rewrite, which produced a fresh, pragmatic approach to helping organisations engage with the concepts of maintaining a measured approach to improving and using the maturity model which has gained recognition across the globe.
