WSL 3-02: Project Management

Participants learn to connect to the business drivers and answer the questions ‘What does success look like?’  Workplace projects range from small moves and changes involving little risk to the business, to large relocations and new builds across multiple geographic domains. The latter cases require a high degree of project management skill and experience as well as organizational capability to support and provide governance across the stakeholders involved. For large organizations the role of the project management may involve a high degree of program management and being able to cope with cultural differences as well as the political sensitivities.

WSL 4-02: Improvement Management

Improvement management is focused on quickly capturing, monitoring and fixing day-to-day failings within the system. Well run, such a system not only fixes problems quickly and effectively but is seen to be doing so, and enjoys a strong feedback loop to further service design. It is very important that mistakes are not replicated, lessons are learned once, and effective means exist to pass-on the learnings to the next project. Historically improvement management has focused on tactical, well-executed activities but this session will also demonstrate the importance of improvements in strategic thinking.
