Programme Boards – room for improvement

‘Much of the best practice guidance for Programme Boards has evolved from, and built on the disciplines of, project management and there are well established bodies of knowledge to draw on. But these tend to focus on ways of managing risk and controlling change in the delivery of the content of the programme – rather than the qualities and effectiveness of the board that is in charge of that delivery.’

This practice results in the fact that a disproportionate amount of time is spent on companies that are not performing.’
