This chapter examines the implementation issues faced by projects once work on the ground was under way. First, brief findings on levels of implementation are presented. Project management and staffing – and how varying arrangements impacted on performance – are then examined. Next some of the key generic issues that confronted project managers in developing and steering the ongoing implementation process are discussed. Finally, the chapter looks at how projects monitored their own performance, focusing in particular on their financial management.
