13 Transformation Success Factors for Program Managers

Rob Llewellyn shares 13 program transformation success factors which could, if taken into consideration when approaching a program of work, increase the chances of success. It’s a fact that most programs fail – and most projects fail too. That needn’t be the case for you.
  1. Set high standards and realistic expectations.
  2. Establish a clear vision and communicate it well.
  3. Remove obstacles from the path of the new vision.
  4. Lead by example.
  5. Establish board-level support.
  6. Optimise stakeholder engagement.
  7. Focus on benefits realisation.
  8. Don’t declare victory too soon – but systematically plan for, and create, short-term wins.
  9. Put the right managers in place and give them real power.
  10. Focus on results, not an elaborate change process.
  11. Change quickly – tackle issues in parallel, not in sequence.
  12. Establish a great enough sense of urgency – execute speedily.
  13. Anchor Changes in the Company’s Culture.
