How do we deliver change for the City of London?
Exciting and successful companies thrive by staying ahead of the competition in this ever changing global marketplace. Recently the CEO of Nokia cried after a press conference following the take-over by Microsoft. Nokia wasn’t a poor performing company, it just failed to change quickly enough to ward off the competition. As individuals, we too should continually reassess and enrich our development to outperform our competitors.
So, how do we deliver change for the City of London?
Change in the City is delivered by project and business managers collaborating on projects together. Both can benefit from learning how to deliver projects using a pragmatic methodology and toolset, which are easy to adapt and implement for all project sizes.
So, how do we deliver lasting change for the City of London?
The City of London is competitive with high rewards often accompanied by stress and anxiety over job security, with greed fuelled by an over-reliance on alcohol and other toxic choices. Underlying the façade is a lack of contentment and balance in life. Government data shows that suicide in the city is increasing. Unite, the trade union, reported that three-quarters of bank employees admitted to living with anxiety, insomnia, and depression due to stress at work. Living constantly with stress prevents us from balancing our lives and removing the toxicity, leading to ill-health and even premature death. What use is the multiple six-figure salary to you then?
We are multifaceted in essence, so developing all areas of oneself is vital if we are to reach our optimum level of “success.” Lasting change is delivered if we address all areas of a person’s life, not only their skills and knowledge, but also their health, well-being and relationships. Some call it wholistic change. People who take this approach to their own personal development and change, also deliver more success in their life, including successful projects! They are open to adapting project methods to suit different environments. And they manage people with their development in mind too, which builds trust and morale.
Successful Project Management delivers change

The way to thrive in this environment, rather than just survive, is to learn how to manage change and deliver projects successfully, while at the same time developing your people management skills which are critical to achieving what you want.
