Home Local And Regional Government Context

Programmes are designed to coordinate the direction of related measures and actions to deliver outcomes and benefits of strategic importance. They provide the structure needed to maximise success.

In local and regional government there are typically three main drivers for programmes:

  • Vision led programmes - created from scratch, that start with a clearly defined vision and focus on a strategic opportunity
  • Emergent programmes - evolve from current uncoordinated initiatives, where there is recognition of the strategic value of a joined-up approach
  • Compliance programmes - also called ‘must do’ programmes, where the organisation has no choice but to change.

Some programmes are a response to all of these drivers, e.g. Climate Change. For all programmes, it is essential to have clear strategic objectives, against which programme benefits can be assessed.

The following diagram gives an idea of where programme management fits within a London local authority and its relationship with Portfolio and Project management.
