“WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER, THERE IS NO BETTER TEAM.”

Rod is also helping to develop a runbook for onboarding new acquisitions from an IT perspective which will include change management.

SUPPORT & GUIDANCE
“My colleagues know that they can expect excellent project management support when delivering new projects or business transformation. I can also offer technical guidance and training on project management best practices.”
“On any transformation project I require full support from the client to ensure that new technologies and working practices can be embedded into AAB once the project goes live. T the start of any project is critical to define roles such as key stakeholders and sponsors to ensure that there is full business buy-in.
ROBUST CHANGE MANAGEMENT
“Where there is resistance to change, I need to make sure that there is robust change management plan and business case to ensure business buy-in and support on delivering a project.”
ENSURING EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS
“Having delivered IT projects for over 25 years I know that I am able to work with clients at the appropriate technical level to ensure all parties understand what is being delivered, and that we’re all on the same page.”
A DEFINED CHANGE MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Project Scope Creep is always a major challenge, but it can be managed by fully scoping out a project prior to commencing and then managing any changes through a defined change management process.”
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“What excites me most about my work is the opportunity to make a difference by delivering efficiencies through business transformation projects. AAB is continuing to grow so it is an exciting time to be part of the organisation.”
“One of the AAB Group Values is “Collaboration is our superpower”, and I believe that when we work together, there is no better team. We seek out opportunities to collaborate.
This is the key value that I keep in mind to ensure that when delivering a project I have a team that works well together and between us can achieve anything.”
A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE
“I have worked in many sectors and projects so I can bring a wealth of project management experience to AAB, and I will be able to pass this information to my colleagues.”
ON TIME & WITHIN BUDGET
“People think that Project management will delay and hold back the delivery of projects. Whilst it will add more work it will also improve the chances of a project being delivered on time and within budget.”
