Business Change Through Projects: an NHS perspective of patients, politics and puzzles - 23rd Nov 2015
Posted by APM on 9th Dec 2015
A talk at Coventry University titled “Business Change Through Projects” was aimed at Business School students who have just had their Project Management modules accredited by the APM, as well as local Midland Branch APM members.
On the evening, 24 APM members and Coventry University students joined together to listen to Tina Gallagher explain how projects in the NHS enable business change. With business transformation projects on the rise in the public sector, this gave delegates the opportunity to hear first-hand how this is achieved in practice, and what some of the challenges to achieving success are.
Tina recounted her experiences and lessons learnt in achieving success in projects by engaging all of the stakeholders, including both the management and the medical staff, and how some of these stakeholders are able to ‘manage’ expectations rather than the project managers!
A perfect example of how projects are all unique, and that the way to approach projects must be adapted and suitable for each individual situation.
