Improve your strategy delivery by thinking BIG

Transforming project, programme & strategy delivery with ISO 37000 and Business Integrated Governance.

Integrated Organizations Discussion Forum - Meeting 1

The Integrated Organizations discussion forum is part of the Good Governance Research Forum.

Everyone is welcome as we initiate this important discussion.

Strategy development and delivery is far from perfect in many organizations. Why is this?

There are many well documented reasons, but many of them boil down to ineffective organizational governance failing to hold our innovative excitement together.  We could talk about what we must stop doing and avoid, about the compliance we need, but instead we want to talk about the integrated approach to governance that will help us achieve greater strategy accomplishment and improve business agility.

We don’t have to wait for magic to happen anymore.

During this discussion, we discover how to leverage ISO 37000 and the Business Integrated Governance model to help us organize ourselves for success better.

David Dunning

Chairman of Corporate Project Solutions and founder of Core P3M Data Club CIC

David has a leadership role in a small number of businesses, is an active and energetic management consultant, specialising in the portfolio, programme and project management domain, and more recently in business integrated governance.

He founded (November 2018) and leads the Core P3M Data Club (which is a community interest company delivering content into the public domain). It has seeded an example data model based on the Praxis Framework fundamental definitions which have been extended to support a model for Business Integrated Governance (BIG).

BIG presents a paradigm shift for improvement of portfolio, programme and project management within (and beyond) an organisation – as it assumes we know P3M best practice – so can focus on how to enable businesses to balance “run the business” and “change the business” more efficiently and effectively, and give a real measure of business agility. (if you can measure it, you can improve it).

David also works with a team of associates, Deepteam,  who can engage with an organisation that wishes to improve its “strategy to delivery to objective realisation” chain, offering a radically different approach to that which many P3M experts will provide. He also has a fantastic network of technology providers and data specialists who work up the mechanics of a solution while consultants work back from a vision. Our value comes from external diagnosis, vision and roadmap definition and coaching / mentoring organisations to fix their underlying issues, but David and associates can also support delivery work.

Lastly, David is the co Founder and Chairman for CPS, which is a leading UK based Microsoft Gold Partner delivering solutions around Modern Work Management and Modern Workplace. CPS also delivers edison365 solutions for Innovation, Business Case and change delivery.
