The APM Programme Management SIG will be holding a conference in November that will showcase the best practice when embarking upon collaborative transformational change programmes.

APM Programme Management SIG (specific interest group) committee member Jim Dale, who is undertaking doctoral level research through the University of Portsmouth, will share his findings with those who book a place at the Delivering more for less conference taking place in Birmingham on Tuesday 26th November.

To help understand why collaboration is so challenging and what constitutes best practice, those with experience of major organisational change are invited to take part in a survey  one of the integral elements of the research to be revealed at the event.

Jim, along with David Hawkins from the Institute for Collaborative Working, will tackle the subject of Delivering collaborative change one of the four cross-cutting themes being addressed on the day.

Business and academic research both suggest there has been a prolonged and significant increase in the number and range of collaborative ventures. Frequently they are referred to as strategic alliances. Yet the evidence that is available suggests that sustaining collaborative partnerships and striving to achieve transformational change through collaboration is particularly challenging.

Chair of the Programme Management SIG Merv Wyeth said: Many within the programme management community will have experienced instances of transformation change, successful or otherwise, involving organisations working together. We are keen to capture this knowledge and build an evidential base for future best practice.

As professionals we should act on the basis of what we know works evidence, rather than inadequate theory or intuition.

In combination with the other themes of Programme management competence, Organisational change management and Communities of practice the conference will explore how programme management can help to achieve transformational change in an era of austerity.

With outstanding speakers from a range of sectors including defence, policing, Government, health and utilities the conference will benefit anyone working in a programme environment that has an interest in delivering transformational change within, or on behalf, of an organisation.
