The recent International Project Management (IPM) day no doubt saw various events and celebrations take place around the world. All well and good I hear you say. Well perhaps so, but remember that strategies continue to fail at over 70% (EIU) and programmes of work and projects continue to waste huge amounts of money - $3million every minute (PMI). It’s therefore time to reflect and shift the focus to one of value rather than compliance and/or process adherence that seems to be so commonplace.

The acceleration of the VUCA world will continue to put pressure on organisational leaders to change, transform, or simply just catch-up to stay relevant. Boardroom directors, c-suite executives, and other leaders must shift their business approaches to one that is driven by a value creation and capture philosophy. Success here lies in the adoption and integration of a number of key attributes around speeding-up and reducing waste. These include pivoting around the ‘3P’s to success’ (purpose, people, performance), and value management that’s coupled to a higher level of portfolio management.

Collectively Iain rolls those into the ‘The Age of Simplification’ where one sets out to free the entity from the mid-management process centric stuff that he refers to as the organisational handcuffs, to allow for adaptability, and nimbleness to be quickly deployed as the need arises.
This webinar on Thursday 13 December, supported would be value amplifiers within their organisation by learning and subsequently leading value creation and capture via a value management framework.
