Project Governance and Roles
Each project will have its own governance structure which exists for the life of the project. This is to provide assurance to the delivery of the projects and ensure that the project team is aligned with the project objectives. There will be at least two levels of governance as described below: the Project Team and the Project Board.
The project board itself may be responsible to another level of governance although this will depend on the organisational structure. For example projects may form part of a wider Portfolio or Programme. In these cases the authority level and purpose of each governance group needs to be defined.
