Orchestrating Major Projects: A programme for Director Generals

On the back of the Academy, Oxford Saïd designed the Orchestrating Major Projects programme. The major projects in the Government’s Major Projects Portfolio address some of the most pressing domestic priorities that face us in the UK and beyond, and this programme was designed to focus on the key areas where most improvements could be made in the delivery of Major Projects.

Together, Oxford Saïd and the OMP are reshaping of the Major Projects operating environment and enabling delivery of more, successful major projects for the benefit of government but ultimately our citizens.
