Peter Mayer, Pelicam’s Managing Partner, will be appearing at the APMG-International Showcase UK this year and chairing some interesting round table discussions on the day. The event aims to provide a platform for effective learning and sharing experience for programme, project and risk management specialists.
Date and venue
Thursday 28 June – QEII Centre, Westminster, London – Registration and coffee from 8.45am.
Peter will host two highly interactive discussions which will prove to be highly relevant and give some real insights to the attendees.
Stakeholders and Sponsors - time off for good behaviour
Poor stakeholder management and ineffective sponsorship contributes to two thirds (66%) of Pelicam’s serial project killers. Despite much promotion in the industry, our experience indicates it’s an area consistently undervalued and invested in. In this session we will explore the requirements for good stakeholder management and the governance and communications necessary to support it. In particular, we will explore what good sponsorship looks like …… attitudes, actions and behaviours. And any best practice techniques/mechanisms for sponsor ‘coaching’.
Serial project killers - psychology, warning signs and detectives.
As a result of research into more than 50 health checks, Pelicam discovered nine ‘serial project killers’ that are likely to derail most projects and programmes. As well as detailing the serial project killers in this session we will examine some of the reasons as to why these killers are serially committed, and explore some of the warning signs and how they can be detected prior to the event.
This session will be invaluable for programme and project managers and functional change executives with project and programme responsibility.
