Stakeholder Skills for Project Managers
A one-year rolling development programme for project managers, who deliver business change.
Royal London has a long heritage in financial services, and now has a dynamic market-focused group strategy, and with it comes a big and growing change agenda.
The Job was to equip the central team of project managers to deliver bigger outcomes on more complex projects, by focusing on their stakeholder management skills.
Our Solution was co-designed with our client team. Much more than just training, the programme for each project manager was extended over a year, starting with learning workshops and backed up by a flexible follow-on service of small group action-sets and one-to-one coaching. Our final purpose was to create a self-driven learning culture so that we could leave and the benefits are still coming.

“The People Deliver Projects approach is fantastic! We’ve done a number of these workshops now, and I never fail to get pleasure in seeing people start the session cynically waiting for ‘death by powerpoint’, then 10 minutes later being absorbed 110% in the action and learning more than they’ll ever get from a text book or traditional training course. The follow up sessions means it sticks too. You can’t ask for more.”
