In the case of the traditional approach, an organization has received a Statistical Need and produced a Change Definition and an approved Business Case. The Business Case will specify either a change to the design or methodology of an existing Statistical Program, which will result in a new Statistical Program Design; or a change to one or more existing Statistical Programs (for example, to add an additional objective to the Statistical Program); or result in a new Statistical Program being created.

This does not include statistical support functions such as metadata management, data management (and other overarching GSBPM processes) and design functions. These activities are conducted as part of Statistical Support Programs.
