    Solution often technology- rather than business-led
    Not necessarily sustainable

    Proven practices, technologies, standards and services
    Often substantial internal business change for institution
    Supported by significant senior management involvement

  • 7. Initial findings –IIP concept
    Useful general approach for creating sustainable change
    More general applicability
    Lesson identified
    Need to select/manage projects to meet IIP characteristics
    Areas for improvement
    Benefits realisation activities
    More stringent selection of areas of institutional concern and projects
    Training on concept and implementation
    Review approach to planning/funding of benefits realisation activities
  • 8. Initial findings – IIP delivery
    Too early for definitive assessment
    SSBR had only just started
    Likely to mature post project completion
    Aspirational nature of outcomes
    Continue to focus on desired outcomes
  • 9. Initial findings – IIP management
    The programme is generally well managed
    Lack of programme management resource and overall scale of Round 2 projects might be a risk to programme
    Focus role of SSBR
  • 10. Initial findings – summary
  • 11. Evaluation of IIP – phase 2
    Phase 1 was by interviews against detailed questions
    Many more Round 2 projects
