tCI’s Option Appraisal webinar
Yesterday (25th April) we held our first Member exclusive webinar of 2019!
Lasting around 30 minutes, Nick Duffin, who delivered the webinar, shared Institute thinking on options appraisal.
- What tCI has learnt from judicial reviews and the legal challenges before Court
- The shape of good option appraisal
- Who should be involved in the process
- The different approaches
We decided this was a topic that needed discussion as we have seen a significant growth in the number of legal challenges based on how a consultor arrived at the options for a consultation. The focus in these challenges have mostly included one or more claims of biased approaches, biased participation in option development and/or appraisal, not having the right people involved, and/or flawed scoring or consensus models.
During this time the Institute has been monitoring the challenges, arguments, debates and what programmes survived scrutiny. We have successfully been advising programmes of change on how to design and undertake options appraisal, in a manner that takes account of unique circumstances but ensures a fair approach that is robust, good practice and hard to challenge.
