For any change to succeed, you must get to grips with the journey you are taking your people on, and put in place the right mechanisms to help them navigate the path. See how in the articles below.
The key to successful change is having a clear sense of where you are heading and why you are heading there. Any change needs to be rooted in tangible business benefits, supported by a robust business case and an understanding of the journey your people are embarking upon. Here we provide some guidance on how to shift your organisation from one that maybe “can’t” change to one that “can” and ultimately “will”.

Governance bodies that are set up well can have a significant impact on the smooth running of projects and programmes of work. Here, we talk about the key ingredients to ensure that your governance arrangements are most effective and add value.
