|Publication Date:||15 April 2014|
|ICS Code (Space systems and operations):||49.140|
This International Standard provides a framework within which an organization can establish the basis for the development of programme/project management specifications and plans when undertaking the execution of a specific programme/project. It enables the programme/project manager to establish the criteria for programme/project success and to secure the organization's commitment to the programme/project manager's management approach for the overall programme/project and its constituent elements. It includes requirements leading to the establishment of a programme/project management framework, and identification of practices to be applied. Following these requirements also results in traceability of the considerations and decisions on why and how the programme/project is conducted according to its specific characteristics.
This International Standard provides a holistic approach for programme/project managers to apply their organization's programme/project management practices when defining the management framework for programme/project planning. It is based on a systematic method of
- defining the programme/project objectives and success criteria,
- identifying and elaborating the specific characteristics of their programme/project,
- specifying the management elements needed,
- establishing and agreeing the management approaches to be implemented, and
- compiling these into a programme/project management framework document.
This International Standard is applicable to any organization undertaking the execution of space programmes/projects.
