Following the success of our first event, ‘What does it mean to be a Capable Owner?’, the Project 13 Capable Owner Pillar team are now delving deeper into the ideal makeup of a Capable Owner team at their next event on 20th September 2022 at 9am BST. With a wide range of perspectives, we’ll be exploring how an organisation can mobilise a broader mix of diverse talent to achieve its aims based on the matrix of individual capabilities.

Hear some direct experiences from:

  • John Grimm, National Highways Smart Motorways Programme with the Project 13 Enterprise team perspective, will share the journey of the latest Project 13 Adopter to create the enabling environment to attract and retain individuals with the right capabilities.
  • Stewart Craigie, part of the British Antarctic Society’s supplier ecosystem, with a supplier’s perspective, including exploring how the supplier can bring innovation earlier in the process.
  • Jo Theobald, Public Sewer Services, will bring an individual’s perspective on how curveball talent can make an impact from someone with a non-traditional background.

You can find out more about the Project 13 Pillars: Capable Owner, Governance, Organisations, Integration and Digital Transformation in the Project 13 Network - a vibrant, knowledge-sharing community for all those interested in delivering infrastructure differently.

Andrew Page

Andrew has been involved in the creation of the Anglian Water Alliances from their beginnings back in 2004. This started with the creation of the world renowned @one Alliance, the success of which led to more of Anglian’s work being delivered through Alliancing models. The success is now so strong that Anglian’s Alliances have become a fundamental part of the Business Planning process during each regulatory cycle.

Andrew has shared the knowledge gained via Anglian through various forums to promote collaborative working. Acting on behalf of the Infrastructure Client Group (ICG), he conducted a number of ICG Alliancing Best Practice Assessment’s to help newcomers on their journey, and is now the co-chair of the Project 13 Capable Owner Group.
