We have established regular project coordination meetings between team leads in our company and have had great success to streamline project delivery.
Should our new COO be invited to the project coordination committee (he is currently outside of it)?
Due to the role and the fact that we currently don't have a VP2 leader, should this person become the champion for other VP2 opportunities?
One of our IT Leader Mastermind groups recently tackled this question. Here is a summarised version of the outcomes.
It is imperative that the Project Coordination meeting is seen as inclusive. If there are leaders in the business who are not part of it, but you feel could add value, do invite them. If nothing else, this will assist improve communication.
But beware to immediately assign them a bigger responsibility (e.g. VP2 leadership) just by the mere fact of their title. First see if the person naturally takes on a bigger leadership role in the group. If they do, they might become your best ally on the DX (Digital Transformation) journey.
