Enabling change - The Enabling Change SIG
What is the research?
Project professionals are looking for tools to help them identify and address the people and organisation dynamics that undermine project delivery. Currently the development of tools to meet this challenge lags far behind the tools for managing finance, progress and risk. This research looks to address the gap.
Why is it important?
Parag Gogate of the Enabling Change SIG leading the research adds: “In our search for tools to fill this gap, the SIG has been impressed by Assentire’s Innovation Audit. Its creator, Rod Willis has agreed to collaborate with the SIG to tailor the tool to the needs of project professionals. We see this as a unique opportunity to improve project success rates and take the APM closer to achieving its2020 Vision”
Who is the intended audience?
This study is focused on organisations who employ 20+ project professionals and is led by the Enabling Change SIG funded by the APM volunteers research fund. The study is also of interest to individuals who are looking for ways to improve project delivery.

Good governance is about how people behave. These behaviours need to be set from the top.
As a project manager, your job is to split the work up into different tasks and ensure others complete their part of the jigsaw puzzle. This entails overcoming a number of hurdles. So what are the most common of these, and how can you get ahead?
