Value management - what is it, how do you do it and why is it so, well.... valuable?

Value management is a formal, disciplined approach to helping organisations define, manage and more confidently capture tangible value, either created through operations and continuous improvement efforts or delivered from business transformation.
Unfortunately, a significant percentage of transformation efforts fail to deliver the full potential results and benefits.

True value management:

- Realises superior business results with speed and confidence
- Maintains the linkages between transformation and strategic objectives
- Establishes governance focusses on business results
- Provides and objective basis for setting priorities and making trade-offs
- Creates a roadmap of business actions needed to achieve the value
- Provide the mechanism for sustaining and extending the benefits, and
- Provides for tracking and monitoring of results.

Failure to achieve full potential of a transformation often comes from:

- The organisational focus not being on the highest impact opportunities
- Solutions that don’t deliver the required business capabilities
- A lack of accountability for achieving results, and
- Business actions not taken to achieve the full benefits.

But, what does good look like?

The programmes that are more successful at achieving the potential benefits tend to employ formal approaches to managing value throughout the transformation.

Successful leadership and change professionals help the business to achieve tangible and concrete business results by getting people ready, willing and able to deliver sustainable change at all levels of the organisation.

Organisations that are focusing on value management find it is increasingly recognised as an essential discipline in successful business transformation.

Want to be proactive and discuss how your approach to value management could increase the success of your business transformation? – get in touch!

The team that sautées together stays together!

Nothing like some healthy team competition to kick off our annual Nonsuch strategy session thanks to Social Cooking.

Teams were given a mystery bag of food and had to come up with a meal idea, prepare and cook the meal, and plate it for the judge in full Masterchef style.

Paul KEESING led the winning team to culinary victory, with spot prizes for the tidiest and messiest teams (we're looking at you and your team Youssef Mourra...).

Great way to get the creativity, collaboration and problem solving happening in advance of our 2-day strategy session!

Effective leadership and risk management are closely linked to delivery success

t's no surprise that effective leadership sets the tone and helps create the environment within which robust risk management is developed and performed. And this is particularly true when it comes to project governance and in helping set the course for project teams to navigate in what can be challenging environments - both internally with stakeholders and externally with clients.

Experienced project leaders don't just set the objectives and designate responsibilities - they act as role models, defining what’s expected of the wider team through their actions as much as their words.

Effective leaders also have a particularly important role in shaping the risk culture of a project team by reinforcing accountability for risk management by focusing on risk response progress and effectiveness in meetings with the team.

This accountability promotes improvements to response planning and helps to create a positive risk culture within their teams.
Without effective leadership, the team may lack the overall direction and vision needed to shape its approach to risk management. A combination of clear strategic risk leadership together with effective tactical risk management will give a project team the best possible chance of tackling the risk challenge and meeting its goals.

In contrast, if senior executives are not supportive of an organisation’s risk management efforts, those efforts are likely doomed before they start.

Risk oversight has to fit the culture of the organisation and a one-size fits all approach to risk management simply doesn’t work.

Generative AI (Gen AI) is developing exponentially - but what does this actually mean and how does it impact on the way we manage projects and risk?

This has been a hot topic at Nonsuch recently as statistics show that by 2030, Gen AI could enable 70% of business activities to be automated, adding millions to our New Zealand economy.

According to the 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle, the growth of Gen AI is going to be exponential with advancements such as ChatGPT and the rise of AI apps changing the way projects are managed.

Our business leaders will need to:

- Interpret the new technology for their organisations by developing an understanding of Gen AI, its capabilities and understanding the associated risks.

- Provide training for their staff and ensure upskilling in the technologies.

- Introduce change management processes for managing any uncertainties about the use of Gen AI and establishing clear guidelines for the use of the Gen AI technologies.

Gen AI is only going to get more prevalent, and you don’t want to get left behind. We can work with you to get a better understanding of how Gen AI is could change your project management practices.
