Creating and delivering highly effective commissioning strategies and plans


Commissioning and planning for any kind of service involves a diverse range of activities and skills.  At its most fundamental, commissioning embraces understanding need, planning, contracting, delivering, monitoring within finite resources and managing a conflict on priorities and resources.
