What Simon has achieved:
Simon shared his knowledge, insights and experience with Dyson and was able to establish that there were some design, roadmap and planning challenges that needed to be addressed immediately.
He articulated and communicated these to the project sponsor, Amy Weedon, and the project lead, Melinda Morales, and won their support to propose some fundamental changes in approach.
He then scoped, shaped and identified the deliverables and capabilities that would need to be engaged to deliver this phase of the project and create the foundation of a successful project.
Simon sought support from the broader Leading Resolutions team and was instrumental in standing up the capabilities required, in a rapid timeframe.
He remains at the centre of the project to support the client and deliver the outcomes. His vision and ability to articulate a clear plan have been critical to the progress to date. He has been a great ambassador for Leading Resolutions at Dyson
What Simon has been doing:
This engagement has been focused on delivering:
- The governance and associated stakeholder engagement plan for Phase 1 in order to enable Dyson to progress to Phase 2, including the supplier onboarding, governance and delivery output required
- Managing business change and stakeholder communications and governance including go/no go meetings in line with the project plan
- Producing the associated Phase 1 plan with an assessment of the activities, tasks, resources, dependencies, risks and mitigations to be managed in collaboration with the Dyson team
- Produce a Phase 2 initiation plan, to allow the hand-over of the project from Phase 1 into Phase 2 planning.
