As the devolution agenda moves forward, councils are increasingly finding services and assets transferred to them often with little in the way of follow up support. Ensuring this transfer is achieved successfully and with the minimum disruption to the user community requires careful management. Equally, internal change initiatives to improve performance or reduce costs present challenges to achieve effective results.
Project Management provides a toolbox to facilitate the planning and coordinated execution of activities to achieve targeted outcomes within deadlines and budgeted costs.
