Global Projects and Change OrganisationPwC
Globally, we've embarked on a journey to create the capability to work as ‘One PwC’ and make it easier to bring the best of our collective thinking to each other and our clients. Aligning, streamlining and standardising many of our business operations processes and technologies across the Network is going to take a concerted effort but will help us achieve our Vision 2020 objectives. Given the pace and speed in which PwC is investing in initiatives to drive Vision 2020, our ability to manage change for our business and our people is more critical than ever. This is why the Global Leadership Team has established the Global Projects and Change organisation, under the Global Projects and Change Leader (who sits on the Global Leadership Team).
The Global Projects and Change Manager will support the Global Change Director on delivering components of the change strategy across the Network. The global change organisation objectives are to:
establish and foster a community of change leaders across the network that can drive change at the territory level (and therefore, create a baseline of change support across the network)
identify and create ways to support change enablement at the individual level, consistently across the network
establish and refine a consistent change methodology with tools and templates,
provide support at a strategic level to global change initiatives to drive consistency and alignment, and 5) serve as advocates to territories (for partners and staff) on change impact and behavioural changes.
