John Davis joins the NSSG support team as Programme Delivery Manager
John is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and a member of the Royal Corp of Naval Constructors (RCNC) and has extensive experience in engineering and project/ programme management roles in Defence Equipment & Support. More recently he was the Ministry of Defence Submarine Dismantling Programme Manager, bringing relevant and practical skills into this NSSG position.
John is advocating the use of a Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) framework. This will be focussed on programme level delivery of the objectives and benefits identified in the Nuclear Skills Strategic Plan and allow the constituent themes to be formalised as projects. John will be working with NSSG members, to sponsor the projects and will provide programme management of the interdependencies and risks at the appropriate level. It also means that communication can be managed across all aspects of the delivery of the NSSG’s Strategic Action Plan, to ensure robust stakeholder engagement.
John said: “I’m delighted to be joining at such a pivotal time in the sector’s evolution. I hope to provide an approach that delivers the skills ambition of the NSSG and ensures the work across a number of interrelated projects within the plan is expedited to bring the intended business benefits to the sector.”
