David Griffiths, an expert in Project and Program Management, highlights the long-term nature of certain projects and the tangible benefits they bring. Using the example of building a new mattress system that spans over 15 years, he emphasizes the need for forward-looking management in such endeavors. Furthermore, Griffiths points to the historical roots of program management knowledge, particularly in transformational situations that revitalize and transform entire organizations. He provides a real-world example, referencing how New Zealand Telecom underwent a significant transformation over the past 15 years and evolved into what is now known as Spark. This transformation is noteworthy because the current Spark organization is vastly different from what previous generations would have been familiar with. David ends his discussion with a note of gratitude to his audience for their attention.
