In some cases, deep sectoral knowledge is required to lead consulting projects, particuarly where communication with experts and stakeholders works from a common usage of language, or where the service delivery context is particularly complex.
However, many services use similar approaches to plan and monitor performance results, with lessons from disparate areas of service delivery often providing good practice exemplars. One example is the Investment Logic Mapping process, which in Victoria requires any submission for government investment to meet the Department of Treasury and Finance's (DTF) requirements. Similarly, the business case process and lapsing program evaluation templates seek a standardised approach.
In these cases, it is important that program delivery and review approaches are robustly applied to achieve a consistently high standard of project deliverables. Bespoke methods can also be designed and applied, where required, based on the topic, sector and circumstance.
