Alignment & Coaching

Project Team & Stakeholder Alignment & Coaching

The quality of project relationships, within the project team and between key project parties and stakeholders (e.g. client & contractor, joint venture or consortium partners), is a leading indicator of project outcomes. Project complexity further increases the need for good connections and collaboration between the project parties

Alignment is an ongoing process which typically means helping teams to:-

  • Build robust and productive relationships

  • Reconcile commercially conflicting interests

  • Align on and plan for current project critical tasks

  • Socially connect with each other as individuals

Alignment workshops are designed and led by experienced facilitators who understand the project environment, its complexities and the parties’ inherent commercial interests and who can handle power and group dynamics

Project Leadership

Everyone is well aware of the high potential for project failure. Discussions in industry forums typically result in a call for “more leadership” in this context. But leadership is not the exclusive domain of a project director with super(hu)man qualities. Leadership is present in all important project decisions and actions – “leadership is us”!

This is why our programs blend knowledge and principles with the development of effective behaviours – leadership behaviours – needed to enact good practice, at all levels of the project organisation

How we address this in our learning designs:

  • Integration – we develop leadership behaviours and relational skills alongside knowledge acquisition and practice development

  • Reflection – we encourage ‘live’ review and reflection on current practice and planning of new actions

  • Complexity – we introduce different thinking & strategies to help cope with project complexity and uncertainty

Digital & Elearning

The future of corporate learning & development is going to be digital to a substantial degree – whether we like it or not.  In the space of little more than 5 years, the way we seek, consume, learn and retain information in informal and formal settings has changed dramatically. How we translate these new digital habits into a corporate learning context is an emergent – and exciting – challenge for organisations
