Details

The Art of Brilliance unpacks the behavioural characteristics of highly successful leaders of transformation programmes. It brings to life the everyday challenges of leading complex transformations in a succinct and helpful aid.

It builds upon the IPA’s formal guidance, The Role of the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO), that sets out expectations and accountabilities of SROs.

Targeted at the newly appointed leader, it is intended to be an enduring reference that provides useful insights, prompts and ‘nudges’ to help you be brilliant every day.

The material is sourced from extensive interviews with SROs of previous transformation programmes and enhanced by research from the public and private sectors.
