From vision to embed - going all the way with institutional change
This year’s UCISA CISG-PCMG16 Annual Conference and Exhibition returns to the Brighton Grand and its fantastic seafront location
The Corporate Information Systems Group (CISG) is partnering with its sister group, Project and Change Management Group (PCMG) to bring you a joint conference covering all aspects of delivering change in our organisations.
We are facing increasing pressure to deliver more with less and decrease the time to value of our information systems and service changes. But how do you implement system and service changes in an increasingly 24/7 365 operation and how do you demonstrate the value of them. SaaS and delivery techniques like Agile present real challenges for us as practitioners, and our organisations built on traditional project and change governance structures. Do you know what you need to do, how you’re going to get there and who to bring along for the ride?
The Conference will explore the nature of change in our organisations using a lifecycle model based on 4 main stages: Creating a vision for change, engaging people, delivering it and finally, embedding the change. Through seminars and workshops based on the different stages of the lifecycle, the Conference will be highlighting the crossovers and collaborations between the professional communities involved in change in our organisations. All sessions should provide delegates with practical takeaways and guides for each stage of the lifecycle. There will be big ideas and vision alongside university showcases providing real life examples of HE system change initiatives. You will have excellent opportunities to consult and network with your peers and will be supported by a host of vendors who will be exhibiting their solutions and providing their thoughts and experiences to assist us in our journey.
The RMT has announced that they plan further industrial action on Tuesday 22 November until Wednesday 23 November.
There will still be Thameslink trains from St Pancras/Farringdon to Brighton and back, but they will be crowded. If these strikes go ahead they will have a significant effect on Southern Railway’s services. For up to date information, please click here.
