  9. 9. Delivering • Get governance right from the start – no one is in charge, you are a team • Recruit the best and keep them for the long haul • Get a good grasp of the budget across the piece, allow enough contingency and manage it tightly • Use world-class programme delivery skills with effective management of issues and risks
  10. 10. Delivering • Let the programme evolve and keep teams evolving with it. You cannot communicate enough with the public or your staff about how you are doing • It’s a World wide event not just domestic and factor in that interest • It’s all about the sport.
