LESSONS LEARNED - EFFECTIVE TRANSITION FROM POLICY TO PROGRAMME†
- Poorly designed policy and/or bad initial programme set-up are root causes of programme failure.
- Project teams which explicitly set out to learn from past mistakes are more likely to achieve success in major new initiatives.
- Collaborative working is hard, but it is essential to achieve outcomes in complex programmes which involve multiple delivery partners.
The PPM community has an important role in strengthning collaborative working with those leading on policy development and strategy in their departments, in order to achieve the desired benefits from high-risk delivery programmes.
- Assurance is beneficial from the early stages of the policy-to-delivery lifecycle.
The PPM community has a key role in encouraging the take-up of internal and external assurance.
