Why every digital team needs a ‘DPAB’

I published a post last summer about the positive effect a new project management framework was having for us and those we work with. A lot has happened since then, but, through it all, DPAB has doggedly and determinedly continued to meet every Wednesday to triage, assess and prioritise. We couldn’t do without it. So, what is DPAB and why do you need one?

What is DPAB?

Digital Projects Assessment Board (DPAB) is the governance function that assesses, approves, and controls project progress on behalf of the Digital Communications team.

DPAB was formed to provide oversight and control of incoming and in-process requests for work. This means all significant workstreams within Digital Communications can be supported to continually deliver user and business value. We demonstrate this value through effective and clear benefits realisation.

DPAB meets every Wednesday, like clockwork. We’ve only missed a few and that’s not because of C-19 or being too busy. It’s because we weren’t quorate.
