Systems Thinking resources
Systems thinking is an approach to problem solving which takes into account the overall system as well as its individual parts. It is used as a methodology to improve delivery of complex change initiatives.
A framework for understanding the workings of the system can enable us to ensure that we get the maximum return on the bet we make with the resources available to us. It enables us to compare the impact of different combinations of initiatives in a much more objective manner.
The Systems Thinking resources page is a rich source of helpful material including books, papers, presentations, videos, webinars, and social media – all related to Systems Thinking.
Stakeholder engagement resources
Stakeholder engagement is the practice of interacting with, and influencing project stakeholders to the overall benefit of the project and its advocates. The successful completion of a project usually depends on how the stakeholders view it.
Their requirements, expectations, perceptions, personal agendas and concerns will influence the project, shape what success looks like, and impact the outcomes that can be achieved. Successful stakeholder engagement is therefore a vital requirement for professional project management.

Body of Knowledge consultation

This will be available from the 26 February for eight weeks.
