Starting Gate

Starting Gate review is used to support emerging major initiatives by identifying practical delivery issues early in the policy-to-delivery lifecycle, and so help major projects succeed from the outset. The review is conducted by a small team, independent of the policy area and normally takes place over three days.

At the end of the review verbal feedback to the Senior Policy Owner (SPO) supplemented by a short written report which highlights major findings and any suggested actions or recommendations for the SPO to take.
