April

"The hand you are dealt with is just the starting point for development" Carol Dweck (Author of best-selling book Mindset).

It's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success - it's what kind of mindset we have. The right mindset can help to motivate you and others in achieving your professional and personal goals and to see challenges as opportunities to grow and improve.

This session examines the concept of growth mindset and starts to explore tools and techniques for building a growth mindset.

Date and Time: 23rd April (12pm - 1pm)

June

All change initiatives, whether large or small, have to be justified especially when they involve spending public money. In all sectors, there are always more spending proposals than funding available. Every successful initiative begins by demonstrating its value, continues by showing this value is on track to be delivered and finishes by revealing the value it produced. The heart of this is the business case.

This session covers the key concepts around project and programme business cases. It introduces the five-case mode, in use around the world, developed by the Welsh Government and UK Treasury. It touches on key content and the steps involved in building a business case. It references how PRINCE2 and Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) address business cases.

Date and Time: 19th June 2024 (12pm-1pm)
