Development of steering group culture and practices
Properly working steering groups are an essential part of the program/ project mode. Same people are the members of many steering groups. Having same kinds of clear ways of working will bring effectiveness to the steering group preparations and meetings and ensure the quality of the decision-making.
Midagon had a key role in the enhancement of steering group practices in a global manufacturing company. The current status and needed changes were defined in the workshops. The most important areas that required clarification were the composition and the size of the steering group and the roles of other stakeholders. Midagon contributed with best practices from other companies, led workshops and trained steering group members. The training material was then published as a Steering Group Handbook.
Benefits and successful implementation
Good common practices already in use in the company were complemented with new practices. Steering group members were active in participating sessions and feedback was very positive.
