As we continue to transition to full implementation of recommendations, it is essential that momentum is sustained, delivery supported, and that we maximise the benefits of identified opportunities.
The range of deliverables from this phase of the review means that ownership of implementation will sit across many organisations within the overall enterprise and skills system. In particular, we expect the new Strategic Board to adopt and oversee delivery of many of the activities that are articulated within this report. Details on how these will be implemented and by when should be included within the wider Strategic Plan.
More immediately, the figure below sets out the Scottish Government's implementation timetable for the Governance aspects emanating from the review. It shows that the Strategic Board will be in place by October 2017, with the South of Scotland benefiting from a new interim approach, being implemented in the autumn.
