Changing the way we work – delivering impact through better project management
Organiser(s); Martin Locock BA MIfA (University of Wales Trinity Saint David) firstname.lastname@example.org
This workshop challenges participants to question their working environment and processes – to think about how the way they work can affect the impact of what they deliver. In this session, impact is synonymous with the benefit of what we produce regardless of our ‘job’ – whether we produce research, advice, education or policy. In Project Management theory, benefit is the focus of every project, and it dictates the shape and nature of the project itself.
Participants will be encouraged to think about how prioritisation and better control of their work would improve their working life and the quality and impact of what they deliver. They will be trained to think of tasks and jobs as projects, to analyse where things currently go wrong and to develop a new working style: where benefit is the focus, resources controlled, communications work and teams are based on appropriate expertise.
The session will use exercises and group discussion as well as offering ideas and templates for better project management. The session will be run by qualified PRINCE2© practitioner, Martin Locock.
