7 Moving Forward to : Lessons Learned Some conclusions Managing with Authority through Partnership, includes: Make sure all partners understand & are compliant with the (complex) agenda – talk the same language – learn from experience Implement the results of evaluation – dont be afraid of change Convert commitments into expenditure (N+2) Keep on top of the data – plan ahead, identify milestones Robust monitoring, with follow up – sort out the irregularities In summary, failure to be compliant with Regulations, or to interpret them incorrectly can have severe consequences
