Implementing strategy successfully is often the weakest stage of strategic planning – and there can be many reasons for this: keeping on top of changing drivers, balancing priorities and resources, achieving longer term ambitions vs operating day-to day. Strategic initiatives can falter, and desired changes fail.
Strategy delivery – achieving the ambitions, goals and directions of your organisation’s strategy as intended – is about making things happen.
It is challenging – and it’s an area where many organisations struggle.
Yet organisations can improve their ability to deliver their strategy: it takes commitment and sustained effort – but in today’s world it is essential if the organisation is to survive and thrive.
In this series of participative online events, we shall be exploring together some of the reasons why strategy delivery goes wrong, and how to go about improving this.

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.
