Best Practice Hub category definitions

To ensure that users can easily find relevant examples of best practice, entries on the Hub are categorised using the definitions below.

Project Size

Examples of best practice have been allocated to a project value which are meant to be indicative of project size, complexity and duration. The Hub team will allocate a project value to an entry but this will be by no means exclusive, and it may be worthwhile looking at other project value bands to identify relevant industry practice.
