Each year Business Leaders, senior executives, team leaders, and project managers encounter some form of team dysfunction that requires satisfactory resolution to avoid or reduce project and business disruption.
The question is rarely does programme and project dysfunction exist, but rather when, where, and how much.
More importantly, knowing how to recognise and effectively resolve project dysfunction is of great significance. Understanding the various forms of dysfunction and recognising the tell-tale signs is critical in helping to alleviate unnecessary team disruption and loss of productivity.
Theia Training has formulated Leadership and Governance training to help Senior Leaders develop the attributes and awareness necessary to drive effective change through successful projects.
We asked the questions, we listened and then we did something about it.
We spoke to CIOs, ePMOs, CXOs and project professionals ... and these are some of the questions we heard:
"How do I identifying the roles necessary for proper governance?”
"What should be the approval structure for new services?”
”How do you support a new product development process? What should the governance process be?”
“What's best practice for information management and governance?’
‘What are the best models for governance and advisory boards?’
‘How do you create a design governance framework in an agile environment?’
‘What are the options for governance models across run/grow/transform categories?’
‘What does good look like for IT governance board in a distributed models when a lot of technology decisions are happening outside of IT?’
‘What governance models are available for shared services and shared governance?’
We work with our clients to design and implement Governance systems and then provide the training to make them effective.
Theia is a Training Consultancy that specialises in the design and delivery of Portfolio, Programme and Project Governance systems. Theia has formulated Leadership and Governance training to help Senior Leaders develop the attributes and awareness necessary to drive effective change.
Research has shown that individuals are co-opted on to governance bodies and teams often with little or no training or experience.
This has the potential to be damaging for the project and the individual concerned.
Our courses provide a unique insight into project failure and how to avoid it. The approach has its roots in Behavioural Science. Behavioural Science focuses on what people ‘say or do’ compared with Behavioural Psychology which focuses on what people ‘think or feel’. Objectively observing what people ‘say or do’ provides a reliable framework for managing behaviour in the project and governance environment.
Our core governance courses provide a memorable way of classifying patterns of behaviour, linking them to potential modes of failure, intervening and, hence, mitigating risk. Building on the communication skills of active listening, having courageous conversations, observation and comprehension, at the end of our courses senior leaders will be better equipped to effectively deliver change through governing successful programmes and projects.
Theia is theTitaness god of sight and the shining light of the clear blue sky. At Theia, we have designed our courses to be rich in content and illustrated with real examples. Our consultants have all been senior executives in either the Public or Private Sector (or both) and have first hand experience of Programme and Project governance. This is all we do and we are passionate about making a difference.
