Here's the programme for the Winchester workshop...
1015 The Middlesex experience
1030 Key messages from Stage One of the project
1100 Change and IT Projects
1150 Recommendations for the PVC
1200 End of workshop
1215-1300 Meeting with PVC
We had a small audience, but perfectly formed. Head of IT, Head of Learning Development, a Dean, and three others with varying degrees if involvement in e-ish things. Good session - lots of discussion then a very useful - and somewhat confidential - conversation with the Winchester PVC.
We didn't stick to the timing on the programme, Donna's session (key messages) prompted lots of discussion and ran over, but the thrust of the session was clearly in line with the view that IT change was fudamentally about people. Marina's slides evoked plenty of nods of agreement.
There were some powerful comments to the PVC, I'll leave it to Bex to provide a public version later.
The main message that I took away from the session is very much in line with the view emerging from phase one, that IT projects are fundamentally change projects and need to be seen as such.
