Effective planning and a robust delivery framework will help you develop a roadmap showing the journey to achieve the end state and what’s involved to get you there. This is a critical stage where the vision must be turned into a delivery strategy including a clear delivery plan, resource requirements, identification of senior sponsorship, and key control mechanisms such as the management of tasks, budget, risks & issues, stakeholders and communications.

No matter how large the change is, effective delivery is based on taking action to bring the vision or goals to life by putting pragmatic structures in place to make things happen. This stage focuses on how change will be delivered into the organisation.

The challenges you may face during this stage include:

Producing effective delivery plans for the strategy / vision

Establishing effective decision making & governance processes

Producing budget forecasts and business benefits plans

Developing effective tracking process, metrics and KPI (Key Performance Indicators)

Resolving problems and working flexibly to accommodate changes

Resourcing your programme or project effectively (resource capacity management) including clear roles and responsibilities

Identifying stakeholders, understanding their influence and developing a plan to manage them
