Deliver the Capability and Realise the Benefits are two distinct sets of processes, which need to be managed closely together during a tranche. Manage the Tranches oversees these two processes, providing the high level direction, guidance and control.

These sets of processes are followed for each tranche until the expected programme outcomes have been achieved.

The Deliver Phase covers three key sets of activities

  1. Manage the tranches – the overarching day to day programme management and control activities required to manage a tranche successfully. Includes the setup and management of the tranche, preparing for the following tranche and formal closure of the current tranche.

Includes creating the Project Briefs, initiating the projects within a tranche, ensuring stakeholders are engaged, monitoring and managing project activity within its tolerances and formally closing a project ensuring outputs are handed over to the programme.
