Identify pilot policy/ strategic projects to demonstrate the benefits of programme and project management Following the actions of the relevant Action-10 subgroup, a portfolio of exemplar case studies from across the public service has been compiled into a single document.

This document has been published on the portal here in order to share the real-world experiences of Civil and Public Service bodies as they engaged with their preferred Project Management approach. The case studies published on the portal will be revised as needed on a regular basis.

The case studies are indexed according to size and categorised according to type to assist readers in selecting the ones most relevant to their needs.

The case studies were launched at the PMN event on 03 September 2019.

Develop reach of the current Civil Service Project Management Network (CSPMN), including possible sub-networks at public service level Transition from the Civil Service Project Managers Network to the Public Service Project Managers Network took place at the PMN Conference on 3rd September, 2019

To ensure the continuation of the Project Management Network (PMN) in the long-term so that it transcends both Civil Service Renewal (Action-17) and OPS-2020 (Action-10), discussions are ongoing between the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the Action-10 team.

Publish public service handbooks for programme and project management A Project Management Handbook for the Public Service has been developed for the purpose of providing user friendly guidelines on how to adopt a project management approach for members of the Public Service.

The Handbook is designed to provide Project Management methodologies, processes and frameworks, in line with best practice, and which can be employed by public service personnel with limited to no previous project management training or education.

The PS Handbook has been based on the Civil Service PM Handbook model and has integrated public service practice.

The new handbook was launched at the PMN conference on December 10th and can be accessed here.
