Infrastructure includes transportation, communication, sewage, water and electric systems. These systems tend to be high-cost investments but are vital to a country's economic development and prosperity.
Closing the “infrastructure gap” in the areas of the world that need it the most is the aim of The Private Infrastructure Development Group. Since it was created in 2004 it has mobilised $29 billion in public and private investment and its projects have improved the lives of 264 million people by providing improved access to infrastructure. Very impressive for an international organisation that is only 12 years old.
In order to facilitate the continued growth and evolution of this phenomenal international development story, the PIDG recognised that it needed to transform its governance. Consequently Charles Owen led a team from ArrowPM and the PIDG to design a new governance framework and implementation plan, collaborating with the donor governments to get approval to implement the changes.
The first phase of this work was approved by the donors at the PIDG Governing Council meeting in Sydney last November. Charles was invited to speak on the subject of Change Management, an area of importance to the PIDG over the next year. ArrowPM was subsequently awarded the contract to manage the transformation programme,
“It is a real honour for ArrowPM to be involved with the PIDG, and to help enable the next stage of their development and growth. ” Charles Owen, Partner.
