How to cut cost management of capital programmes by 10%

Graham Walker, BT Lancashire Services Project Director
Lancashire Co Council struggled with control of their project portfolio. They wanted better budget efficiencies. They needed to reduce manual handoffs. Information was spread over 100+ systems and hundreds of spreadsheets. In order to improve visibility and control of their projects, BT and Cora Systems implemented a software solution and change transformation programme that has brought greater flexibility and enhanced reporting for their users, and, crucially, reduced cost management of their capital programmes.

This presentation will provide some fascinating insights on how their objectives were achieved.

Establish a value-adding PMO in the NHS

Catherine Onanda, Head of PMO, NHS East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group

In this session, Catherine Onanda, explains how they selected their PMO tool, PM3, and established a PMO ‘value centre’ in East Surrey CCG.

The NHS has to deliver a number of projects and change programmes. Project based tools and Excel were not up to the job of controlling and managing multiple projects and programmes. We decided to create a PMO that used the right tools and processes to track our project and programme outcomes, especially cost savings and benefits.

Key to our PMO’s success was wining the hearts and minds of our project and programme managers. In this session, Catherine explains how East Surrey won the hearts and minds and built a value-adding PMO.
