Principle number seven; “be an intelligent client”, concisely sets out the role government has in establishing and encouraging the behaviours that will transform the construction sector and the delivery of our major projects. In line with that ambition, the government published the Construction Playbook this week.
Whilst successful project initiation can take more time at the start, this will be repaid many times over later on in delivery.
For International Women’s Day 2020 Nick Smallwood celebrates the achievements of women throughout the Civil Service as well as reflects on the need to do more to ensure diversity throughout the project delivery profession.
As the Government’s centre of expertise for project, portfolio and programme management, I believe it is crucial we focus on the 3 ‘P’s. By focusing on these three elements, we will ultimately support the delivery of IPA’s vision is to create the best performing projects system in the world.
