The Action Research Project
Working with around a dozen senior leaders from across public, private and not-for-profit sectors, we will be seeking to discover the practices which help to 'de-risk' these complex projects and increase the chances of delivering the benefits that are intended.
The action research programme starts with an opening one day workshop to set the scene and share an enabling framework for leading complex projects. A second workshop will introduce the action research methodology. Four one-day group meetings will then enable sponsoring organisations to explore their real live challenges with help from other experienced practitioners. Learning will be pulled together and disseminated at a final workshop.
- Access to new learning from across sectors
- Expert advice and inquriy applied to your real live projects whilst they are are in motion
- Being an early adopter of the practices that make a difference, before your competitors
- Stretching the leadership capability of participants who get high impact development at a very low cost.
This is designed for those who have a real, live stake in the management of a complex project and who wish to co-develop with colleagues the approaches, tools, techniques, measures and practices that are more likely to work in contexts of uncertainty and rapid change, where traditional project management approaches are necessary but not sufficient.
