• Lack of confidence in project status
• Focus on IT rather than business
requirements and benefits
• Weak change management
• Unclear where action required
Unforeseen risks and issues
Poor project outcomes
How was it developed?

Feedback So Far
We have had some success with the Major Projects Assessment
Toolkit. The gap for us was sizing across the project piece. We have
addressed this by amending the toolkit so that we can understand the
requirements for different sizes of project.
This looks really interesting, I have asked our internal auditors to do a
review of projects and programmes to pick up on exactly some of these
issues!
We hope that the governance assessment and visualisation tool will help
people understand where we are and aren’t making progress with our
projects’ health. It seemed very clear to us, and we are always looking at
ways to present concepts visually.
Any Questions?

  • 19. Feedback So Far We have had some success with the Major Projects Assessment Toolkit. The gap for us was sizing across the project piece. We have addressed this by amending the toolkit so that we can understand the requirements for different sizes of project. This looks really interesting, I have asked our internal auditors to do a review of projects and programmes to pick up on exactly some of these issues! We hope that the governance assessment and visualisation tool will help people understand where we are and aren’t making progress with our projects’ health. It seemed very clear to us, and we are always looking at ways to present concepts visually.

Editor's Notes

  1. Mark Ritchie (University of Edinburgh) Deputy Director and Head of Project Services Chair of UCISA Project and Change Management Group Lead author of Major Project Governance Assessment Toolkit Pauline Woods-Wilson (University of Lancaster) Head of Project Management and Planning Founder member of UCISA Project and Change Management Group Co-author of Major Project Governance Assessment Toolkit
  2. UCISA Project and Change Management Group was modelled initially on the EDUCAUSE Project Management Constituent Group Our place on the UCISA Executive give the group more potential to influence to project and change management in UK HE and FE
  3. We monitor stakeholder engagement at every committee meeting We’re pleased that the Major Project Governance Assessment Toolkit was our first resources as it includes so many themes which will run through our work going forward If there are any other resources you’d value please let us know.
  4. Our simple aim is to make project and change delivery in HE and FE more successful. Toolkit is complementary to existing project and change management processes. Toolkit is suitable for any business change or IT project being delivered using any methodology. We believe the toolkit is practical to implement and strategic in value. Audience Question How many of you were aware of the toolkit prior to this conference? How many of you have used the toolkit in any aspect of your current work? How many plan to use the toolkit, or any aspect of it, in the future?
  5. Create Vision Vision for Change A vision of what the project want to achieve any why. Using language readily understandable to the business and in the largely unencumbered by descriptions of how it will be done, how much it will cost or how long it will take. Business Case / Alignment The hard facts describing how the vision is to be delivered i.e. the approach, costs, benefits, timescales and risks. Engage People Sponsorship and Stakeholder Buy-In Ownership for the project and its deliverables. User leadership and engagement. Team Building The team delivering the project, their shared commitment and delivery capability. Communication Engaging and informing the wider community of project stakeholders. Deliver Governance Structures The people and processes used to provide effective governance for the project. Project Management and Planning Project management and its context. The clarity and appropriateness of the project plan. Effectiveness of project and resource management processes. Risk Management and Assurance The effectiveness of progress monitoring, financial controls, risk/issues management and project assurance. Implementation Business and technical acceptance criteria. The quality and completeness of the implementation plan including agreed contingency arrangements. Embed Business As Usual (Service Delivery) University of Lancaster introduced the new Business as Usual (BAU) / Service Delivery governance element to the set developed by University of Edinburgh. Lancaster have adopted the ITIL guidance on designing the Service elements early on in the project i.e. by agreeing and documenting the ITIL Service Design Package during the design phase before the solution is implemented. Not all of this can be completed at the start of the project, and will run through the project until it is handed over the Service support team running. Key elements include: Fully defined and costed business as usual service. Agreed plan for transition to the live service Business continuity, backup and recovery arrangements Supplier and contract management Benefits Realisation and Ongoing Improvement Credible assessment of benefits to be delivered by the project. Benefits regularly reviewed and updated as project progresses including identification of activities to support benefits realisation. Responsibilities, processes and timing for post project benefit realisation reviews. Measurement Baseline measures of situation before project started and plans for reporting improvements against the baseline. Other performance measures for the solution being delivered by the project. Learning Lessons learned from previous similar projects. Processes for learning during the project. Post project reviews for identifying learning to improve the services delivered and/or future projects.
  6. Toolkit provides guidance for establish appropriate project roles and responsibilities. Roles def9ined in the toolkit re based on PRINCE2 - Project Executive / Senior User / Senior Supplier / Project Board / User Group / Project Manager Lancaster University, early on in the institution's maturity on running projects, detailed Project Roles, with accompanying checklists, in a booklet for use when starting up a project or when introducing a new member of the project team to their role. A summary of the Lancaster University role information has been incorporated in the toolkit. If you fail to establish appropriate roles and responsibilities your project is unlikely to succeed. Audience Question Which roles are least understood or done least well at your institution?
  7. Governance Assessment as an Engagement Tool The assessment process itself increases: Awareness of the project information required by different stakeholders Project engagement and awareness of all staff completing the assessment Awareness of stakeholder viewpoints within the project team and Project Board
