  • (1888PressRelease) December 22, 2011 - The CMP90 webcast series is based on Catalyst's unique research into 250 capital markets projects, which exposed the practical 'levers' that really make the difference between success and failure.

    This webcast describes the six key 'habits' that the most successful governance groups (including steering committees, sponsors and accountable executives) have in common, looking at the role of active governance in achieving business outcomes and the combination of hard and soft skills necessary to drive programme success.

    The six habits are:
    Clarifying the destination before the journey begins.
    Setting a vision that everyone can buy into.
    Communicating and selling the vision in tangible, practical terms.
    Driving a sense of realism into the planning process.
    Getting into the organizational detail.
    Making sure 'green' doesn't actually mean 'red'.

    Greg Davis says: "Governance groups simply will not achieve successful programme outcomes if they merely turn up to meetings once a month, reading the papers in the lift five minutes before it starts. They need to put time and effort into their role - focusing on what is really important and prioritising accordingly, getting all those involved in the programme moving towards delivering jointly agreed business outcomes, and maintaining a sense of realism through active governance."

    Greg Davis is CEO of Catalyst. He has more than 30 years' experience of working on challenging technology and operations programmes in and with capital markets organisations.

    Catalyst's unique research into capital markets projects is the basis for CMP90 - a programme benchmarking tool and leadership action framework that helps capital markets firms increase the probability of a successful programme to 90%.
