The Saïd Business School will design and deliver a ‘Major Projects Leadership Academy’ for the UK Cabinet Office, it was announced this week.A spokesperson said the new initiative is designed to “develop a cadre of world-class major project leaders within the Civil Service, who will direct major government projects of high complexity and cost.”The programme will commence in October 2012, and will consist of three, 5-day long residentual modules across a period of twelve months. It will draw upon Oxford University resources and the work of the BT Centre for Major Programme Management at the Saïd Business School, whose Director, Professor Bent Flyvbjerg, commented, “Over the past three years we have been developing at Oxford a global “gold standard” for how to manage major projects successfully. This is the standard we now bring to the British Civil Service.”
