Louise Hardy

Organisation. Culture. Diversity – OCD in Project Management

Organisation, Culture and Diversity – how do these critical people related aspects shape and influence the delivery of projects and programmes of work?

In a world of mergers and acquisitions and increasingly large mega projects that require the forming of multi-partied consortia, the creation of effective organisational structure and establishing a positive culture with a rich mix of individuals is extremely challenging.

My talk will explore the range of issues presented by ‘OCD’ for projects and businesses and how these impact upon successful outcomes.
