When forming the Accelerated Business Change (ABC) Guild we wanted to bring together a broad church of expertise, all of whom are involved in the successful delivery of business change. Over the last few years we've seen an increasing number of groups form which, for us, have increased silo-mentality and created divisions. For example in the world of technology enabled projects there's constant debate over methods such as agile VS waterfall, projects VS continuous delivery to name just two areas.
We consulted with our membership and came to the conclusion that the ABC Guild should recognise and encourage a dialogue and co-operation across many of the skills required to deliver business change, whether this be at portfolio level or the development of new software applications.
So the purpose settled on for the guild was "the promotion and sharing of knowledge, insight and experiences in the delivery of effective change across a business". We acknowledge and anticipate that within this broad spectrum their may be more granular and related guilds, however these will be guided by this primary purpose.
