PMI’s Contribution

PMI suggested that the priority is for programme leaders to understand the fundamental principles behind our improvement methodology. The programme leaders utilised the public traiing programme to ensure this was completed quickly ahead of a wiser organisation roll-out.

To support the on-going programme development, the option to call-off consultant support (either remote or in person) was provided by day or part hour. This support also included access to templates, advice, models, and coaching.

To accommodate the specific request to support global projects, an expert consultant was assigned to facilitate the project, support and guide the data collection, analysis and to involve the new business improvement team members.

As well as two waves of Green Belt training, wider project team members benefited from completing the PMI suite of e-Learning and project sponsors were supported through one to one coaching and joint training sessions with other sponsors.
