Abstract:This article provides an overview of the policy implementation nature of programme management and provides clarifying notes on the concepts 'programme' and 'programme management'. Various benefits of the programme management and programmes approach are discussed and highlighted with South African case experiences - the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) and the Maputo Development Corridor - as examples. The article finds that although it is clear that valuable programme management experiences exist in South Africa, few of these have been recorded and a dire need exists to develop such case studies in order to solicit lessons of experience and best practices. The article concludes that programme management has a significant role to play in integrated service delivery and specific recommendations are made to decisionmakers in this respect. Bibliogr., sum.
