Lessons learned from project closing - A case study in Greek public sector strategic planning and change management
KeywordsProject closing ; Greek public sector ; Planning and change management ; Project management
This thesis draws lessons learned from a major project closing by a state owned enterprise in Greece. The apparent failure of leadership to overcome the challenges and capitalize on opportunities is examined. The literature review focuses on the related areas of leadership, strategic planning and change management. Though significant shortfalls are noted in each of those areas during the project closing, none of these are found to be the fundamental cause for the organizational change failure. A PESTL, stakeholder analysis and interviews reveal numerous problems traceable to systemic Ministerial political interference in the governance of the organization. Assuming an end of political interference in organization governance, a SWOT analysis develops recommendations for new strategies for the organization.
