Bournemouth University’s Professor John Oliver has been appointed to UK Parliament’s new Community of Practice (CoP) supporting the Centre of Excellence and Profession in Parliament’s Enterprise Portfolio Management Office (EPMO).
Following a rigorous application process, Professor Oliver will join the project team to aid in project support and delivery.
The EPMO supports the House of Commons, House of Lords and the Parliamentary Digital Service, and members of the Community of Practice will help deliver on parliament’s Medium Term Investment Plan. Professor Oliver will help improve programme and project planning and delivery across Parliament by sharing, advising, and mentoring on best practices and knowledge on leadership, management and organizational performance.
Professor Oliver, who works in BU’s Faculty of Media and Communication, commented, “This opportunity builds on the success of my recent Academic Fellowship with the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology and provides a unique opportunity not only to share existing research knowledge for REF Impact Case Study, but, to co-create new knowledge to advance professional practice”.
With previous experience engaging with policymakers, Professor Oliver has recently completed an Academic Fellowship with the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology (POST).
