Business Transformation Portfolio Office

The business transformation board (BTB) and its portfolio of initiatives are supported by the Business Transformation Portfolio Office (BTPO), which consists of a delivery team and a support team.

The delivery team is made up of business analysts and project managers who work together on assigned initiatives as prioritised by the BTB.

The business analyst and project manager both play leadership roles - the business analyst in defining the problem or opportunity and ensuring the solution meets the business need and the project manager for leading the team and delivering the solution. These two roles, equally, are required for project success.

The purpose of the support team is to provide:

  • portfolio support services to enable the business transformation board (BTB) to prioritise, plan and guide the business transformation portfolio
  • programme and project support services to support staff delivering business transformation programmes and projects
  • centre of expertise services to support the delivery of the BTP and its constituent programmes and projects through the provision of standard methods and processes, ensuring they are deployed appropriately through training, coaching, internal consultancy, knowledge management and assurance.
