Abstract

Gradually public institutions are finally making use of project management to implement regional strategies and programmes. Through the training at various European public institutions, at local, regional and national levels, it becomes evident that Ukrainian public managers to a substantial degree fail to pervade project approach as part of the respected functional operations, processes and structure of the institutions. Moreover, there is an apparent lack of understanding on how to use project approach on an on-going basis for the operationalization of regional strategies and programmes. This article suggests a procedure to address this issue. The main recommendation is that senior public management should establish a project approach whereby all or at least the majority of functional activities for regional programmes’ implementation is seen as projects. The authors offer the guidelines to implement this approach in Ukrainian public institutions.

Keywords: state enterprises, project management, public administration, regional strategy, regional programmes.
