Introduction to Delivery
This area is about the delivery of outputs, outcomes and benefits. Six of the sections deal with the fundamental components of every project, programme and portfolio:
Scope: what are the objectives and scope of the work?
Schedule: how long will it take to achieve?
Finance: how are necessary funds acquired and costs managed?
Risk: what are the threats and opportunities involved?
Quality: how will fitness for purpose of the deliverables and management processes be assured?
Resource: how will the necessary resources be acquired, mobilised and managed?
Some aspects of P3 delivery do not fit neatly into these fundamentals. They are process-based topics (e.g. planning) or integrative topics (e.g. business case). These are collected together under the general title of management and have relationships with all the other six sections.
