There should be a set of Project Plans for the constituent projects in each of the authorised change programmes. Each project plan should be supported by a high level business case and should clearly show the timescales, resource requirements and interdependencies of the project activities. Associated with each project plan will be a set of activities which recognise and seek to mitigate external risks (Risk Plan).
