Real World Series: Effectiveness or Efficiency
Large projects often face cost-cutting pressures from the very start, then disappoint because requirements emerge later that the solution doesn’t meet, resulting in delays and rework, driving up costs and reducing benefits.
Systems Thinking helps ensure that the scope of the problem is explored; that the dynamics of the solution must cope when understood, and the solution is “future-proofed” as far as possible.
This session answers some of the key questions on how focusing on effectiveness early in the project leads to efficiency later, using real projects as case studies.
Followed by a Q & A session.
Hosting this Real World webinar is Andrew Wright, who has 30 years’ experience in managing innovative and complex projects and is a founder member of the System Thinking SIG. Having joined the University of Manchester as a Visiting Lecturer in 2011, Andrew has been teaching project management to organizations including Rolls Royce, E-ON, AMEC and Sellafield Ltd. Andrew currently teaches at UCL and the University of Cumbria in parallel to his consultancy practice and has just published a book on project success. Andrew is a Fellow of the APM and a Registered Project Professional.
