Business-led project delivery in a fast paced world
It is acknowledged across industry that the pace of change increases annually. The financial services sector has been heavily challenged in the past decade; post Global Financial Crisis, you can no longer throw money at a problem to solve it. Other industry sectors have faced increasing pressure through narrowing profit margins and technical innovation.
So… we need to rethink the traditional models of how we deliver projects and change. JBWere, a wholly owned business of NAB, decided to embark on an experiment in November 2015 delivering change with a “skinny” professional project team, supplemented with operations staff and subject matter experts from the day-to-day Wealth Management Advice business and leveraging Agile tools and techniques.
The results have been very positive as both domains “Level up” in their respective understanding of what it take to run and a business and what it takes to deliver sustainable change.
