Aberdeen Chapter AGM with Right people right project - 17th May 2012
Posted by APM on 21st May 2012
70% of projects fail to achieve their desired goals and 3 of the top reasons relate to people. In this interactive, colourful and memorable presentation delegates found out why.
Whether the changes being implemented are organisational, procedural or driven by new technology, success is largely dependant on your leadership style, harnessing the skills of your project team and effectively engaging with those affected by the changes being implemented.
Nick Fewings, Director of The Colour Works International Ltd. whose background has included senior change management roles in Barclays and the provision of change management consultancy to global organisations opened delegates' eyes to the potential that lies within them and their teams to ensure their project is not one of the statistics.
