WELCOME
welcome
Firstly a warm welcome to our Spring event, its great to be back in Birmingham
again and to return to The National Motorcycle Museum which is a venue we have
used many times over the last two decades.
I would like to express my appreciation to our distinguished speakers, some have
travelled long distances to be with us. Their contribution to Project Challenge
sharing their experiences and expertise delivers considerable value which I know
is much appreciated by all.
This event would not be possible without the exhibitors who provide on a face
to face basis great insights into the latest products, solutions and services all
designed to provide real operational value. Keeping up with the latest marketplace
initiatives has to be very worthwhile.
I am sure we are all very glad that economic conditions continue to improve with
the obvious implications for more projects being approved and signed off in an
environment where confidence continues to strengthen. Let us hope that following
the general election whoever is in power will continue to take us forwards.
Project Management has always been and will continue to be absolutely key to all
organisations in both the private and public sector. We will continue to work hard
on your behalf and may I take this opportunity to wish you all an enjoyable and
very worthwhile event.

CASE STUDIES AND
CASE STUDIES and EXPERTISE ZONE Wednesday 25th March
10:15
The changing world of Project Management – building a strategic delivery capability
Paul Major – Director, Program Framework
Business priorities have changed. Today’s business leader is focussed on transformational not transactional management. If you want proof just look at the titles
of the bestselling management books on Amazon or in the airport shop. Our stakeholder’s priorities have changed yet the project management profession is still
focussed on transactional activities, debating process improvement and project management offices!
The business needs support on turning strategy into action and this session will describe the “why”, the “what” and the “how” of building a strategic
transformational delivery capability to do this. In the process you will learn the language that will make you relevant to the CEO of your organisation.
11:15
Dynamic PPM – managing a change portfolio when your BAU is changing rapidly too
Phil Morris – Head of Project Management Office, first:utility
Projects are all about change, that’s a key differentiator from ongoing operations. Projects carry uncertainty and risk and demand a management method to guide
them through a controlled, well-managed, visible set of activities to achieve the desired results. Good principles include:
1. Choosing and delivering projects that are aligned with strategy and objectives
2. Making best use of available resources by applying them to the highest priority projects
3. Assessing how projects contribute to business value
4. Taking management action to keep the portfolio aligned with business objectives
Challenging enough for any PMO, but what if your ongoing operation, your BAU, is changing so fast it looks different every time you see it? Phil will describe
the challenges faced when resourcing the company’s project portfolio and evaluating what-if scenarios, as well as explaining how the pragmaticdeployment of
a dynamic PPM tool transformed the PMO’s ability to do just that. first:utility is growing – fast.
12:15
Project Portfolio Management – Key Techniques
Jon Lewis – Director, Ninth Wave
Ninth Wave has extensive expertise in supporting project portfolio management. In this session, Jon will describe the following key aspects of Project Portfolio
Management:
• Achieving strategic alignment
• Evaluating ‘what if’ scenarios
• Resourcing the projects portfolio
Jon will share Ninth Wave’s experience in this area and show some of the tools and techniques that they use to support PPM.
13:45
Coping with Disruptive Change. A New Approach to Planning
Steve Beaumont – Solutions Marketing Manager EMEA & APAC, Planview
Change happens in every industry, and it’s more disruptive than ever. For an organisation to compete, it needs to be able to consider capacity and demand at the
forefront and have the flexibility to adapt and respond to changes while mitigating risk. Steve Beaumont of Planview examines investment and capacity planning
capabilities, which enable project planners and executives to:
• Rank new and existing investments based on business drivers and priorities
• Analyse which investments should be funded, and which should be de-scoped, delayed, rejected or postponed
• Balance financial and human resource constraints
• Compare scenarios to consider alternative approaches
14:45
Optimise the utilisation of your skilled resources. How to balance skills capacity with demand in a volatile multi-project environment
Barry Muir – Director, Innate Management Systems Ltd
Poor levels of resource utilization can severely impact overall profitability, but sufficient skills must be available to ensure timely completion of assignments and
avoid client disappointment.
Drawing on recent experiences with Petrofac, the Oil and Gas facilities provider, and Micron Technology, the custom semiconductor designer, we will see how
project and services organizations can maintain the right balance in a constantly changing environment.

Extending the PMO horizon through real business intelligence
David Hurren, Technical Services Director, RPC UK Ltd
This presentation provides insight into the current journey undertaken by one of the UK’s top six energy providers to deliver a real time portfolio,
programme and project controls reporting suite. Attendees will be taken through the key areas of the improvement project, including road map
and lifecycle, challenges, lessons learned and benefits of integrated real time reporting.
Also, attendees will be given a look into the future of the initiative and how this is helping move the organisation towards a more effective
Project Management Office, including the positive effect on project delivery.
11:15
Establishing a PMO for transformational change in the NHS
Margaret Armstrong – PMO Manager, Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
The Trust provides excellent health care services across the towns of Warrington, Runcorn and Widnes and surrounding areas. It is responsible
for an annual budget of around £210 million, manages over 4,100 staff and provides access to care for over 500,000 patients.
The NHS is undergoing significant change in the way it manages the delivery of services. At Warrington, the Trust Board launched a
transformational change programme to review and improve all aspects of the way it works, including the delivery of IT services.
Margaret will explain how they have established a central Project Management Office in IT with strong, pragmatic processes to oversee the
wide range of projects underway, underpinned by Bestoutcome’s PM3 tool, and will describe benefits this has brought, including significant
improvements in Board reporting.
12:15
Project Management 2018: PPM as we know it is becoming extinct
Simon Adler – Pre Sales Manager, Workfront
Will the next generation of workers thank us for what we’ve done? The world of project management is at a tipping point. Today’s top-down,
siloed approach is no longer effective in a world of instantly available SaaS applications, real-time data analysis and the challenge of managing
all types of work. Instead, global organisations and analyst firms alike are rapidly embracing the concept of Enterprise Work Management – a
bottoms-up, grassroots approach to managing enterprise projects.
This session will highlight this industry trend and offer insights on how it will reshape the roles of project managers over the next 3 years.
13:45
The art of what’s possible – project and resource planning in an uncertain world
Juan Manrique – CEO of Hydra Management Ltd
How many times did you face an impossible deadline? How many projects fail to deliver on time what was expected? Unfortunately the answer
probably is: “too many!”.
Every project has risks and unforeseen complications but far too often the failure is already built in at planning and resourcing stage. Specialised
resources are scarce and the relentless pressure in each organisation for new projects to be delivered asap forces decision making which is
optimistic at best.
Based on Hydra’s philosophy and the experiences of our customers, Juan will explore how organisations and project managers can achieve a
higher level of efficiency in planning resources and delivering projects on time.
14:45
Enterprise Project Management Solutions – Install and train, job done?
David Dunning – Chairman, Corporate Project Solutions Ltd
David is a founding director at CPS who originated the professional services delivery organisation and has maintained relationships with many
of the most significant CPS customers over the last two decades. He has envisioned and overseen implementations of all sizes, shapes and
complexities in the portfolio, programme and project management space with companies from all industry sectors. He is an APMG Registered
Consultant, Deputy Chairman of the APM Portfolio Management Special Interest Group, a Certified Management Consultant. While being

MASTER CLASS AND
MASTER CLASS ZONE PROGRAMME Wednesday 25th March
10:15
Agile Programme Management
Chris Ferguson – Director, Novare Consulting
Agile Programme Management aims to tackle the challenges of successfully delivering large, complex programmes where the focus is on vision
led transformational change. This seminar will explore how to overcome the challenges of applying an Agile approach to such change initiatives, together with the implications for people centred change management.
Chris will bring together the principles of Agile, MSP and Change Management and explore the culture needed to bring about effective change
programmes. Anyone wishing to understand how to deliver complex change swiftly and effectively will find this session offers valuable and
practical advice for running successful programmes with an Agile, people-centred focus.
11:15
Talent Management: A strategic imperative
Beth Partleton – Past Chair of PMI’s Board of Directors
This presentation examines the strategic value of talent management and development. It pulls from research conducted by PMI®, Human
Systems International and the Economist Intelligence Unit. It demonstrates how talent deficiencies hamper strategy implementation, decrease
project success rates and negatively impact the bottom line.
It illustrates the disconnect between human resources and executive leadership, offers an example of an organisation that does it well and
direction on where organisations can improve. Finally, it provides clear direction on what organisations can do to improve their talent strategy
to increase their project and program success rates.
12:15
Change overload and how to avoid it
Mike Pryor – Principal Consultant, Bestoutcome
These days it feels like everything we get asked to do is top-priority. But how do you prioritise when everything is top-priority, and what happens
when the list of top-priority changes just keeps growing? This is the modern equivalent of the “straw that broke the camel’s back”, and we’re
seeing more and more clients becoming overloaded with change.
Mike will describe clients who have adopted an outcome-driven heat-map approach to programmes and projects, which allows them to
manage the amount of change underway at any time and to balance their priorities and resources effectively.
13:45
Does culture eat process for breakfast?
Cath Convery, Director, Explosive Learning Solutions
Organisations which are going through change processes, whether brought about because of downsizing or because of a lean initiative, will
often concentrate on their internal processes and forget one of the biggest challenges to a change initiative – culture.
Cath will take a case study approach on a large public sector transformational project. She will explain why transformation stuttered and was
not as successful as it was first hoped. This was despite a good business case and a huge amount of work. Yes we have all been through change.
But few implement a Change project well.
14:45
Coaching in the Project Environment
Eleri Evans – Director, Trans4rm Ltd, and Tim Lyons – MD, Gestionnaire Ltd
Key challenges for project management are gaining agreement and facilitating activities towards clear end goals amid ever-increasing complexity. Coaching gives us a tool for focusing the project organisation, whilst working with individuals, groups and /or teams.
It is a recognised and well used approach for people development in wider industry and its use is gaining ground in the Project Environment as
a means to improve performance. We look at the use of coaching in the project community today and its potential for you and your organisation.

Great project managers are brilliant change managers too!

projects if we don’t understand the psychology of change, and how to lead people from resistance to adoption?

13:45
Demand Management: From great ideas to great projects
Derron Taplin – Director of Maxica Consulting & Rebecca Leadbitter, Sciforma
Great ideas are only great if you capture them, evaluate them and ensure they fit your organisation blueprint. In all organisations this is a challenge and
considerable value and competitive advantage can be lost due to lack of visibility and suitable alignment with corporate objectives. So how do you collate,
analyse and provide value without being a bottleneck? Organisations need a pragmatic structured approach that can take you from enigma to euphoria
and we will show you how.

Malcolm West – Managing Director, PROJECT in a box

Project Controls Best Practices with EcoSys
Angie Molter, Director of Solutions Consulting, EcoSys
Across industries responsible for large capital projects, the need for project controls is widely accepted. An effective project controls system will improve
project outcomes and even drive organisational performance. An ineffective system, however, may involve a great deal of reporting and effort, but
produce limited value. Given this, what are the attributes of a project controls system necessary to ensure that your organization is poised to deliver
substantial return on investment – both on the system itself as well as the capital expenditures being made?.
In this presentation, EcoSys discusses best practices for project controls success and provides a showcase of EcoSys EPC, the industry standard for
enterprise project controls software that helps enforce these practices, drives efficiency, and accelerates a team’s ability to act on the insights achieved.
15:00
Project Risk Management – confidence to deliver: on budget, on time, every time
Trevor Jay, Business Development, Risk Decisions Ltd
The business case for organisations to embrace project risk management is stronger than ever. Many projects list risks on an MS Excel based risk register.
What is needed to manage risks effectively, is a tool that allows multiple people access to update their risks, including progress on mitigation actions.
To understand your confidence in meeting your timescale and budget, you have to be able to bring together the up to date information from the risk
register with the schedule logic and uncertainty from the project schedule, to perform a Monte Carlo based schedule risk analysis.
In this demonstration, you will see how Predict! integrates your risk register and schedule, to enable you to quickly and easily model your budget and
timescale confidence.

TEMPUS RESOURCE
Stand 34
It doesn’t matter what sector you work in, every
company strives for effective resource management.
Using available resources in the most efficient way
possible is of prime importance. Most organisations
we talk to struggle with the challenges of matching
their available resources to the demands of current
and future projects. Everyone needs to find answers
to questions such as:
• How should I schedule my projects in order to
maximise resource utilisation?
• What is the impact of prioritising a new urgent
project?
• Are there any resources (individuals, roles or
teams) that are under- or over-utilised?
• How can I easily simulate different scenarios,
figure out the optimum approach and then communicate this to my stakeholders?
There has never been a tool that specifically help us
with these issues – until now: Resource Management
with Tempus R Tempus Resource is designed to allow
easy simulation on project and resource data.
