Steering committees 

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A steering committee is not just something you are in. It is something you work in. Unfortunately, there are doubts in many steering committees about what their actual role and responsibility is – and this affects the success of the project. Therefore, organizations have to invest in their steering committees in the same way they do their project management.  

Project managers handle the daily operation of a project. But it is the steering committee that charts the frameworks and is responsible for the success of the project. Still, steering committee training is not on the agenda at very many Danish organizations. And this is despite the fact that being in a steering committee requires both time, teamwork and decision-making competencies. At Peak, we help steering committee members define their roles and responsibilities, work as a management team and realize the benefits of the project. But we also help project managers prepare their steering committees properly for making the necessary decisions on the right bases. 

Why is it important to have competent steering committees? 

Studies show that teams who take the time to get to know each other and create trust at the beginning of the project, despite deadlines and a tightly packed schedule, achieve better results than those who do not prioritize it. Results such as:  

  • Faster efforts against deviations from the project-plan.  
  • Greater trust between steering committee and project-organization. 
  • Greater benefits realization on projects. 
  • Better progress in the execution of the project.

Our approach

At Peak we help steering committees and project managers interact effectively throughout our course with coaching, workshops or training.  

Roles and responsibility  

The members of the steering committee are enabled to take on the role and become familiar with their roles and mandates. 

Business case 

With the right steering-tools and a continuous focus on the business case, the steering committee can ensure the greatest effect of the project. 

Benefits realisation  

How are the steering committee’s managerial responsibilities connected to the benefits realization of the project? 


The project manager is trained to devise steering committee-materials which enable the steering committee to carry out their tasks.

Lad os varetage jeres styregruppetræning

Alle projekter er forskellige og derfor vil et projekts forløb altid variere. Derfor tilrettelægger vi også vores styregruppeforløb efter, hvad der giver mening for jer. Det kan være coaching 1:1, observationer med feedback eller længere uddannelsesforløb.


Read the book “Projektets styregruppe”

IAt Peak we have written a book about steering committees, whose purpose is to make the project’s steering committees and members more competent, so that we can have more successful projects in Denmark. The tools are based on a total of 27 recommendations extracted by the book’s authors partly from the international standards and guidelines for project management, partly from a range of expert recommendations, concrete experiences from failed public and private projects, as well as a comprehensive study into steering groups, carried out among Peak Consulting Group’s customers.
