Why are our ANZ Gateway Assurance® review's better?

Dedicated ANZ Gateway Assurance® practice

Our organisation boasts a team of consultants, who are dedicated to delivering gated and Agile assurance reviews.

Our team truly cares about our clients and the benefits of well applied gated and Agile assurance processes and reviews. We give our clients the ultimate choice in seasoned and dedicated assurance professionals.

We have over 650 gated reviews under our combined belts, assisting over 60 governments, agencies, departments and non-government organisations, experience better outcomes from assurance and the overall assurance process.

Tailored gated assurance - to meet your needs

PM Solutions Australia are able to tailor gated assurance reviews delivered ANZ Gateway Assurance®, which has have been designed to seamlessly integrate with each other. We understand that programs and projects depending on their complexity and length will be delivered by organisations and the public sector, utilising various delivery methods – conventional, Agile or a hybrid combination.

The PM Solutions Australia delivered ANZ Gateway Assurance® review processes, have been flexibly designed based on the same principle of:

  • providing independent guidance to the SRO, project team and agency on how best to make sure that their programs and projects are successful;
  • with similar assessment steps at each gate; and
  • where it necessitates that projects are required to undergo a detailed planning phase due to complexities, and wish to adopt Agile in the delivery phase, the PM Solutions Australia are able to support both gated and then Agile assurance assessment reviews for that project.

 

Are you ready for a gated assurance review?

OMG! This is commonly what we hear when an assurance review is announced or people start to receive appointments for interviews.  What we say is…relax!

To better prepare individuals and organisations for assurance reviews, we have developed this handy ‘Participants Guide’, which explains the assurance process, provides realistic support and guides participants through the review process. Remember, assurance reviews are not an audit, nor are the assurance review team spy’s, or sent in to ’slice and dice’ projects. The assurance review team are here to help and hopefully improve program and project outcomes.  The PM Solutions Australia assurance teams live for assurance and more importantly, we love to help projects and organisations to succeed.

Health Checks

A Health Check review is a snapshot of the status of a program, or a single project, in order to identify what is going well and what areas need improvement or could benefits from remedial actions. Commonly conducted over 3-5 days. The sole purpose of a Health Check is to gain a 100% independent assessment of how well the program or project is performing in accordance with its objectives, and how well it adheres to organisational processes, policies or standards. A pro-active Health Check ensures the project begins and runs as efficiently as possible, whilst a reactive Health Check can set an over-budget or late project back-on-track.
