No. Your internal project manager and your ISCG consultant are the primary users of the Framework. Staff at-large will see various components as the project progresses (such as when they view a PowerPoint presentation from the Framework, review the RFP, review project status reports and project health dashboards, etc.), but staff at-large do not need to read and become experts on the Framework itself.
Your internal project manager will end up knowing the Framework quite well by the conclusion of your project, but such expertise is gained as you execute each phase of the project. There is no need to study and learn the entire Framework up front.
