I've decided to stop dithering and try to set out a concise, to-the-point, Digital Twin Policy for HE. 

Here's what I have in terms of outline contents, with some help from @Neil Thomspon

What am I missing?

Topic to be covered:

  1. Definition: To agree a working definition of Digital Twin for Highways England, and provide some context on the National Digital Twin programme.
  2. Principles: To establish a consistent and generally accepted set of principles for the creation and use of Digital Twins by Highways England and associated supply chain projects, and align these to the Information Principles described in our Information Vision & Strategy.
  3. Architecture: To describe the common data and technology underpinnings of Digital Twin development within Highways England, including infrastructure, integration, and interfaces, aligned with National Digital Twin programme's Information Management Framework.
  4. Capability: To highlight the skills we require as an organisation in order to be an informed client and custodian of Digital Twins.
  5. Ethics: To set guidelines around the ethical implications of using Digital Twins to manage the Strategic Road Network.
  6. Governance: To document how we will govern Digital Twins within Highways England as a collaborative body of practice, as well as how we will quantify and capture the benefits of investment in Digital Twins.
  7. Federation: Collectively, the definition, principles, architecture, ethics, and governance should allow different parts of Highways England to conduct Digital Twin development whilst minimising the risk of inconsistent, redundant, unaligned, or unethical development.

Although I see it tucked into your governance item I wonder if a specific statement about value about could be missing/be beneficial. 

Value: To define how value is created by digital twins and through the secure sharing of information with others.
