Steve Jenner has extensive experience of Investment Appraisal, Portfolio Management and Benefits Management in the public sector – primarily the UK although he has also worked in the public sector in Australia and in both spending Departments and the centre. He was the driving force behind the development of the CJS IT approach to Portfolio and Benefits management that has received international recognition – for example, by Gartner, the European Commission’s economics of e-Government project and by the UK Government report to the OECD that refers to it as “UK Best Practice” – and which won the 2007 Civil Service award for Financial Management. He was described by the UK Government CIO as, “the rottweiller of benefits management.”
From mid 2006, he was Director of Criminal Justice IT, following the appointment of his predecessor, John Suffolk, as the first UK Government CIO. He continues to advise UK government departments on the development of their approaches to Portfolio and Benefits Management as part of the Transformational Government and Service Transformation agendas.
Steve is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (FCMA), has an MBA from Strathclyde Graduate Business School and also holds a Masters in Applied Criminology & Management from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University.
Steve is a regular speaker at conferences on the subjects of Investment Appraisal, Portfolio Prioritisation and Benefits Management. He is also the author with John Suffolk, of a forthcoming book on value-led Project Portfolio Management.
