Creating effective, consistent governance
Restructuring for success
A new, simpler governance re-prioritised, reorganised and restructured the Business Integration Programme (over 30 separate projects). The initial challenge was to develop and embed a high-level programme management plan with the necessary structures to ensure well-informed and proactive governance. Control over existing projects was achieved within a matter of weeks by focusing on simplicity and reduced size project boards. Thereafter the unusual step of sub-dividing the programme into four smaller programmes enabled an detailed evaluation of each project in very short timescales; and with small project boards, decisions were made and executed quickly.
