Data Engineering Project Management Nordic Bank

Client Challenge

  • The Data Engineering Programme lacked engagement from the business and stakeholders, resulting in missed deliverables and impacting external/internal dependencies
  • The business was perceived as being uncooperative and having a disruptive silo mentality
  • A distinct lack of project and subject matter expertise across the work streams was stalling progress
  • Unrealistic budgets and plans create ‘destined to fail’ outcomes

What We Did

  • Built bridges with key stakeholders and improved communication and engagement
  • Engaged with the business to resolve issues and found solutions quickly through workshops and regular communications
  • Structured the programme by establishing a tailored governance structure that fostered collaboration and controls
  • Defined an achievable execution approach with the stakeholders to limit impacts on the business
  • Identified dependencies and engaged key delivery teams using improved communications
  • Produced a delivery schedule and benefits realisation plan to create the right levels of motivation throughout the programme’s lifecycle

Outcome & Results

  • Programme gained the required budget and realistic plan that supported all deliverables and dependencies
  • The right resources were mobilised at the right time across the work streams
  • Made significant enhancements to the programme’s communication and motivation
  • Exited client site with execution activities in flight and programme on track
