The Implementation Unit supports the public service to strengthen implementation of Government’s key priorities. This guidance is to assist those responsible for implementing complex programmes, and draws on agencies’ experience and expertise. The guidance is not exhaustive, nor is it prescriptive. It is not intended as a replacement for effective programme management methodologies.
Part one is a reminder for senior leaders about the most important decisions to be made at the beginning of a programme’s implementation and as the programme progresses. It outlines the decisions senior leaders should make, identifies possible options, and provides some of the questions that should guide each decision.
Part two supports programme directors and managers to give effect to the decisions senior leaders make.
