Abstract

This paper discusses a socio technical systems approach to the strategic delivery of infrastructure in the regulated UK water sector as part of a participatory focused research project. Part of an ongoing PhD programme, this paper highlights the value of a structured approach toward the facilitation of change within an Infrastructure Client Organisation (ICO). Engaged with a single UK based Water and Wastewater ICO (UKWASC), this project has been able to enact real world change through a framework of participatory change management enhanced by the application of strategic procurement management principles. This paper highlights the context through which interventions can be defined within a practical setting and how to jointly optimise an ICO and its delivery arrangements to work towards achieving effective project delivery.
