Synopsis:

This free of charge event is an opportunity for you to join fellow IT leaders to discuss and debate ways to develop and implement business strategy designed to improve operating models and keep up with the constantly evolving needs of your organisation.

The event will cover the linking of business strategy through portfolios and projects to deliver outcomes that are aligned to your organisation's objectives. This will include techniques which contributed to Eurostar (2008) and Remploy (2009) winning the Association for Project Management Programme of the Year Award.

We will also deal with change theory and the practical steps that can be taken to implement a successful change process, using the response of the legal sector of the Legal Services Act as a case study.
