Programme Management

The master plan gives rise to a large number of different yet interrelated projects which are combined in so-called programmes. However, programme management goes far beyond a parallel processing of these different projects. It is the task of programme management to structure the entire project, to outline the interdependencies of spatial, chronological, capacity-related and financial factors, and to define the overall objectives and general framework. A detailed focus on an individual project is much less important; what really matters in programme management is a careful fine-tuning of an accurate account of these interdependencies and all influencing factors.
