When training in organisations I often come across line managers who are running quite small change projects. They typically involve only 2-4 staff (mostly part-time) and some IT resource. A typical scope might be:
- Change a process or data collection to meet a new statutory requirement
- Introduce a new form to collect data, or move a form online (which always invites changes)
- move a team from one location to another without disrupting services
Discussions reveal that these small change projects are running, without control, in most organisations. The worrying thing for me is that the project managers don’t see themselves doing change.
