Taking an Improved Heritage Project Management System to a Focused Delivery Culture for a large NHS Hospital Capital Expenditure Directorate

The Northern General Hospital Sheffield (STH) had proactively developed its estates capital project management approach to align with RIBA 2013 and to improve internal controls. Sustainable Direction Ltd (SDL) worked closely with STH to together create the “STH Way of PM”, increasing the knowledge of the PM process via two main linked knowledge delivery steps, the PM’s understanding of the Project Process, and Improving PM skills. Key was engendering a culture to make the system clear and correctly focused for the PM team to deliver the business case for the hospital for a significant £multimillion annual project delivery outcome.
