Successful implementation of change requires good governance as well as good management. So what’s the difference? This course refers to international standard ISO 38500 for Corporate Governance of IT together with the OGC Best Practice framework for Portfolio, Programme and Project Management to clarify what good governance of change is, and how it correlates to good management and execution.
The purpose of this course is to identify and investigate what constitutes good governance of change. Course delegates will gain insight and understanding regarding how to apply good governance, exercise overall control and make the key decisions while also delegating day-to-day management of change to the appropriate programme and project managers.
The result is improved performance in achieving beneficial change within an organisation, and improved effectiveness and efficiency of senior managers’ time.
The course is aimed at Directors and Senior Managers of public and private enterprises who need to maintain a balance between investing in change and business operations, who want to make sure that their portfolio of programmes and projects is well balanced, resourced and delivered, and that programme and project managers are adequately directed and controlled, while empowering them to deliver outcomes.
