The programme model
The cross-governmental programme model is voluntary to use and contributes to the management and coordination of several mutually dependent projects.
Based on best practice
The cross-governmental programme model is develop based on the international standard, MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) and all requirements and advice stems from concrete Danish and international experience.
The cross-governmental programme model
The cross-governmental programme model is set out to:
- Provide a common programme management and programme leadership model for governmental programmes based on best practice
- Professionalise governmental programme leadership and management through voluntary programme model requirements, including advice with respect to the application of stages and the development of programme leadership documents
- Ensure concept clarification including guidelines for choosing between a project, a programme or a portfolio
- Make available experience and good practice from Danish and foreign programmes for the government sector – both to disseminate experience in an immature area and to avoid any parallel development of methods in various government institutions.
The elements of the model
The cross-governmental programme model consists of four elements:
- A stage model including four overall programme stages:
- Identification of programme
- Specification of programme
- Management of programme waves
- Closure of programme
- Nine programme themes contained in all stages of the programme and, therefore, constitute a superstructure to the stage model.
- Seven fundamental principles for good programme leadership providing the framework for programme leadership
- A number of optional products to support the stage model.
