Initiative Measures of progress
Identify pilot policy/ strategic projects to demonstrate the benefits of programme and project management A portfolio of exemplar case studies from across the public service is being put together. The action team decided that the use of real examples from across sectors would lead to greater understanding and buy-in across the public service. The use of case studies gives focus, direction and confidence in the use of programme and project management methodologies. Robust case studies also act as another support to project teams and assists in demystifying programme and project management.

Five workshops were held up to the end of June 2019 with members of Action 10 Team in relation to the case studies and how best to categorise and catalogue them.

Catalogue and reference guides are under development and will be available on the Reform and Delivery Office website in the third quarter of 2019.

Develop reach of the current Civil Service Project Management Network (CSPMN), including possible sub-networks at public service level A draft paper on governance issues for the rollout of a combined project management network for the civil and public service was in the final stages of development by March 2019.

Discussion are ongoing with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform regarding the best way to resource and support the Network to provide a meaningful and value-adding work agenda into the future.

The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform are finalising an online information-sharing solution which will be put into production in the third quarter of 2019.

Publish public service handbooks for programme and project management A Project Management Handbook for the Public Service is being developed with links to relevant case studies referred to above.
