About David

I have been involved in project management for as long as I can remember, but professionally since 1989 when I attended my first training course 'Project Planning & Control' at Hoskyns, using PMW! Started out on mostly technical projects and over the years have managed larger projects, multiple projects, then programmes and portfolios. I've switched between technical and business change many times and previously have referred to myself as a hybrid change manager, able to communicate equally well with business and technology stakeholders. My two main drivers now are bringing order out of chaos and building highly effective and high performing teams. For me, whilst the business outcomes are important [bringing order out of chaos], it's the people that make them happen [high performing teams]. Understanding 'why' the work is being done is also important, and is a fundamental part of building and developing high performing teams.

Current Role Details

I am currently working an assignment at Co-op Bank in Manchester, as a Programme Manager in their Payments portfolio, specifically looking to introduce and embed a programme structure to manage Visa Scheme mandated changes.

The role is required to cover both business and technology change, and with the organisational challenges that the Co-op Group has had over the past 3 or 4 years, there has been minimal focus on delivering these projects and therefore Co-op Bank have fallen behind the curve wrt meeting Visa Scheme mandated changes.

Lots to do and I'm working with some good people who want this to be a successful change for the Bank.
