Positive Impact of Good Governance – a director’s perspective, with specific reference to some of the particular factors regarding ICT

Speaker: – Marcel van den Assum – who is well known to many as a former CIO of Fonterra, IT visionary and professional director. Marcel has some strong opinions and interesting perspectives on this important topic.

10:00 a.m.     KEY ISSUES IN SUCCESS/ FAILURE

A senior executive with strong operational management experience, Peter’s past experience includes leading the Systems Integration practice for a major vendor in the South Pacific as well heading the Project Quality Office for the same company in the region.

10:45 a.m.     Break

11:05 a.m.     THE IMPACT OF ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE ON GOVERNANCE AND THEREFORE ON PROJECT SUCCESS

This session will consider briefly some aspects of this critical issue and how it impacts Project Success. An interactive group session will follow. This will assist participants by open discussion of issues they may have faced in their work. Chatham House Rules will apply.

Facilitator: – Murray Stevens – has extensive knowledge and understanding of outcomes planning and development and implementation within organisations. He helps organisations to understand their culture how they might determine targeted interventions to improve performance. His  career spans hands-on operational delivery, managing for service delivery, through organisation and sector strategy; past roles include frontline delivery and supervision, through middle management to general management.

12:00 a.m.     Lunch

01:00 p.m.     PMOs –ARE THEY A FORCE FOR GOOD?

Many organizations have established PMOs. Yet concerns exist that they are not as effective as they might be. In fact some people regard them as a process sop and a nod in the direction of compliance. This session aims to dispel this impression. Although the PMO has an impact on all phases of the Project Lifecycle the speaker will pay particular regard to to a minimalist approach and using PMO’s as a vehicle for delivering real organisational value

Speaker: – Andrew Bate

01:45 p.m.     MEASURING SUCCESS

How we can measure success? The session looks at how this might be achieved with respect to both the Initiation and Closure Stages of the Project Lifecycle and the requirements of ISO 38500.

Speaker: – Warwick Sullivan – Principal Consultant, Hyder Consulting

02:30 p.m.     Break

02:50 p.m.     LEARNING FROM Societe Generale

Video, followed by Panel and General Discussion

This interactive session will highlight some of the issues and problems which exist in situations where despite the presence of theoretically sound processes and controls, constituting a governance framework, these are not effective. It is intended to act as a consolidation of the earlier sessions within the context of a well reported case.

Facilitator: Alisdair McKenzie – an Information Systems Professional with extensive experience in public and private sector organisations in IS Systems Development and Maintenance and more recently in IS Audit and Assurance roles. He is a Past President of the Wellington Chapter of ISACA and a Past Chair of the NZCS IS Security Special Interest Group.
