High performing projects successfully deliver power efficient day-to-day operations and drive long term, strategic growth. High performing environments deliver needed solutions that drive competitive advantage. However, even the most mature enterprise can fail to execute high performing projects, impacting operations, strategy and long-term success, particularly in environments that demand innovation.

This presentation is focused on the underlying principles at work within high performing projects and a revolutionary new way to understand and utilise the power of communication to ensure long-term success and the delivery of innovation.  Mark Phillips is the author of Reinventing Communication, a book about project management, system design and complexity from Gower Publishing.
