Prepare the program baseline
In this step, the focus is on making sure alignment between program benefits, the required resources to deliver that benefit, and the way that the program is organised.
Questions we ask:
• Is a baseline prepared including a description of the work and benefits, have detailed plans been prepared – with milestones?
• Is there a description of end to end Governance?
• What is the program organisation and what resources are required, are internal and external interdependencies identified?
• Are program controls ready to go?
No delivery date is credible without a baseline.
