Translating the client value proposition for an infrastructure project into project outcomes



Delivery management is the critical leadership role played by a knowledgeable client to specify, procure and deliver infrastructure projects efficiently and effectively, resulting in value for money.

Delivery management translates the value proposition associated with a business case into project outcomes. Clients need as such to:

  • plan– decide in detail what needs to be done, how it is to be resourced and achieved  and in what time frames, and set a budget
  • specify– define the client's functional and other requirements for the project clearly and precisely
  • procure– obtain project resources (internal and external) to execute project activities with care and effort
  • oversee delivery– observe and define the execution of the project to realise the client’s value proposition

Delivery management is supported by project, programme and portfolio management.
