About the event:
If the implementation of the 2005 Defence Industrial Strategy is to be successful the UK Government and Ministry of Defence requires efficient Project organisations that demonstrate effective leadership and team working to deliver projects on time, to budget and to specified requirements.
Last years conference and the NAO's report 'Driving the Successful Delivery of Major Defence Projects' both concluded that developing and sustaining the right cultural environment was the key to the successful delivery of complex defence projects.
The conference this year (2006) provided an opportunity for industry, government officials, other policy formers and analysts to develop an understanding of not only the role of the ‘leader’ in project delivery, but also the importance of performance management and stakeholder relations in today’s complex defence contracting environment. It allowed the role of project leadership, programme management and contracting frameworks and their increasing relevance in defence acquisition with particular regard to the 2005 Defence Industrial Strategy and building on the work of the National Audit Office in developing the ‘Gold Standard’ from successful project delivery published in 2005 to be studied.
