Description

The project aims at mapping and extending impact of the PI’s research on novel forms of reporting and governance onto a range of Major Progammes run by the UK government. Through the PI’s teaching on the UK Cabinet Major Projects Leadership Academy, 320+ UK senior civil servants have been exposed to this research. From data available at the Infrastructure and Project Authority and preliminary work, it emerges that several Programmes have benefited from this research. Mapping impact will help a) to systematize lessons learnt and share them across the whole government’s portfolio of programmes thus enhancing impact, and b) to develop an index to assess the quality of decision-making in government’s programmes.
