The PMO began by establishing the real levels of savings
achieved, and used Project Management principles to establish
standard procedures for all initiatives.
 Project Initiation Documents (PIDs)
 Business Case Templates, including Peer Review processes
Business cases are evaluated with a focus on high value/high
return projects with the potential to deliver significant savings
and efficiencies
Each approved business case is implemented in four stages:
 Design
 Build & Test
 Implement & Roll In
 Optimise
