Rediscover the strategy hiding in your change programme
Your projects align to your strategy, but is your strategy being delivered by your projects?
Scottish Water is a publicly owned company, answerable to the Scottish Parliament and the people of Scotland. It's our job to provide 1.34 billion litres of drinking water every day and take away 847 million litres of waste water. Asset Management is fundamental to our service and we have a strategy and change programme to help us improve this.
We are making good progress to ensure our strategy is driving our transformation projects. We have an honest, practical and customer focused strategy with clear objectives. The challenge has been linking the strategic plan through to the programme blueprint and ensuring projects deliver this.
To achieve this, the strategy team and change team work together. We have been facing the challenges of bringing different approaches together; for us this is Institute of Asset Management methodology, MSP and agile. While we still face challenges we will share our compelling story in this presentation.
Peter Faulks has a restless desire to make things work better and help others do the same. As a chartered Civil Engineer he spent 12 years changing Scottish Water’s assets to improve water quality, reduce river pollution and prevent flooding. But the greatest satisfaction was from changing the way the business changed assets.
Over the last seven years a shift into change management enabled him to bring about lean thinking into the business and more recently agile project delivery. He has helped deliver major change projects and many small continual improvement initiatives; some of them were even successful. All of this experience has now come together in the role of strategic change lead and programme manager for the leading asset management programme.
This event is suitable for professionals with all levels of experience.
