  14. 14. ORGANISATIONAL LANDSCAPE 15 DWP provides welfare services to around 22 million customers We provide these services to: •  Working age - mainly out of work benefits, with in-work support growing with Universal Credit. •  Pensioners - State Pension, Pension Credit, Winter Fuel Payments. •  Disabled and carers (all ages) - DLA, PIP, AA, CA. •  DWP does not only administer benefits, but provides support to claimants, for instance by: •  Helping them find work through the Jobcentre offer. •  Helping claimants find work or move closer to the labour market through contracted provision (Work Choice, Work Programme, Fit for Work, Access to Work).
  15. 15. ORGANISATIONAL LANDSCAPE 16 DWP expenditure was £177bn in 2015/16 •  This represents: •  23% of public sector expenditure •  9% of GDP •  Equivalent to the GDP of the world’s 40th largest economy •  The Department currently has around 78,000 FTE staff and 850 buildings. •  The Department is delivering some of the biggest transformation projects in government.
  16. 16. FRAUD & ERROR IN THE BENEFITS SYSTEM 17 Breakdown of benefit overpayments (2015/16) Fraud – The claimant knowingly provided false information or failed to provide information on time knowing they would receive benefits they were not entitled to. Claimant Error – The claimant mistakenly provided inaccurate or incomplete information or failed to provide timeous information. Official Error – The department failed to action information provided to us on time meaning the benefit paid was incorrect. The rate of fraud and error in DWP has fallen from 2.2% to 1.8% since 2010. Taking debt recovery into consideration against gross overpayments gives a net loss to the taxpayer of 1.2% (£2.1bn) of expenditure.

  25. 25. TEAM STRUCTURE, CULTURE & CAPABILITY 26 •  Clearly defined roles & responsibilities. •  Collaboration. •  Right balance between technical & ‘soft’ skills.

  27. 27. SUMMARY 28 Successful business change needs to be underpinned by:- ü  A clear vision of the future that is articulated at both an individual and organisational level. ü  Senior buy-in & a ‘balanced’ leadership team. ü  Business change processes that are embedded in the project delivery lifecycle – they are not an optional extra. ü  Engagement, communications and ‘big’ stakeholder relationships. ü  A team based culture where the softer dimensions of project delivery are recognised and valued. ü  Mechanisms to define, measure and monitor success. These dimensions of business change all need to operate in harmony to maximise success
  28. 28. ANY QUESTIONS ??? 29 Keep in touch ! @jobrad1
  29. 29. Our working list of key factors for successful change a.  Formulate a clear vision and strategy, supported by well- defined benefits b.  Ensure strong leadership and sponsorship c.  Define and follow a well-structured approach d.  Understand, engage with, build commitment from and support key stakeholders e.  Build a strong change team with the necessary capabilities for success f.  Measure the success of the change initiative
  30. 30. a. Formulate a clear vision and strategy, supported by well- defined benefits 1.  People are more likely to accept change if they understand why it is happening, what it will entail and how it will affect them. 2.  Change programmes/projects must be aligned with the overall strategy of the business. 3.  Well-defined benefits provide something tangible for people to understand, aim for, and ultimately measure in terms of how well the benefits have been realised.
  31. 31. b. Ensure strong leadership and sponsorship 1.  Actions speak louder than words. It is important that guidance and support is provided to your senior managers and sponsors so that they not only advocate but act as role models for the change. 2.  Involve all the right people from the organisation to drive and support the change so that there is real ownership from the business. 3.  Make sure that there are escalation procedures in place and apply them if necessary.
  32. 32. c. Define and follow a well- structured approach 1.  Adopt one of the many well-documented change methodologies and standards, combined with strong programme and project management. Choose one that integrates well with what you already have in place in your organisation and make sure that you collect, share and review lessons learned. 2.  Manage programme / project interdependencies in a way that optimises your change programme. 3.  Design and deliver communication, training and support interventions that achieve what they are meant to achieve. Communicate, communicate and communicate. 4.  Have everyone in your change team, and your sponsors 'singing from the same hymn sheet', so that all your messages are consistent and reinforce each other.
  33. 33. d. Understand, engage with, build commitment from and support key stakeholders 1.  Each stakeholder and group of stakeholders will perceive and respond to the change differently. Review the change methodologies and standards for tools that will help you to understand, engage with, build commitment from and support your stakeholders. 2.  Engage with your stakeholders so that they want to help you make the change succeed and feel supported through it. Work with key influencers. 3.  Be aware, when working in collaboration or partnership with other organisations, of the added complexity involved in these stakeholders’ own organisations. 4.  Consider the psychology and behaviours of change. 5.  Take account of all the other changes and work pressures affecting your stakeholders so as to make the whole experience as positive and painless for them as possible.
  34. 34. Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group Part of the APM People SIG §  Encouraging practitioners across the PM community to make stakeholder engagement a higher priority How are we doing that? Our mission: §  Raising awareness –  Giving stakeholder engagement more attention at events –  Challenging the status quo §  Supporting practitioners –  Developing the APM ‘Stakeholder Engagement’ website –  Making it accessible to all –  Building case studies and resources §  Sharing knowledge, tools & methods –  Forging links with SIGs, academia and industry bodies –  Signposting research & development Learn more about stakeholder engagement:
  35. 35. e. Build a strong change team with the necessary capabilities for success 1.  Nurture your team to make it a high performance team that combines a clear focus on its task with strong interpersonal relationships. 2.  If working with third parties, explore ways to achieve high performance within their teams, and in their interactions with your team. 3.  Equip team members with the necessary skills for enabling successful change. 4.  Develop and support change agents, advocates and champions, whether formal members of your team, or representatives in the stakeholder community.
  36. 36. f. Measure the success of the change initiative 1.  Test or pilot and monitor your change initiative so that you can adjust your approach as needed, demonstrate success, learn from your experience, and build and share success stories. 2.  Other things to consider: i.  What does ‘success’ mean – is partial failure / partial success acceptable? ii.  When do you measure: before, during, after the change cycle? iii.  What output (project related), outcome (change related behaviours), benefit (performance related)measures do you use? iv.  How do your measures relate to your various stakeholders?
  37. 37. Break out groups Ground rules: everyone has their say; keep to the topic! 1.  Instructions – choose one of two themes in each time slot – these will be repeated so you will get to explore all six themes: •  a & d •  b & e •  c & f 2.  Suggested agenda for your break-outs (approx 25 mins): 1.  Introductions - name, affiliation and briefly why interested in this topic 2.  What factors contribute to the success of this topic - based on your experiences and what you have heard today? 3.  What pitfalls should one avoid? 4.  What if any methodologies have you come across that are particularly helpful for this topic? 5.  Any anecdotes / stories / good practices that you would be prepared to share as a follow-up to this event - one-line summary and contact details 6.  As time allows - quick summary of main points to take forward from the break-out
