Assurance Plans

Our team of assurance specialist, continue to develop, refine and deliver assurance plans for some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s largest portfolio’s, programs, projects and organisations. Our assurance plans provide business owners and stakeholders with confidence that the program or project will be well managed, and that the expected strategic outcomes and desired benefits, will be delivered, through a range of mutually agreed, relevant and effective assurance activities.

Our teams are specialist in delivering cost effective and fit-for-purpose project assurance plans, that take the pressure off resource requirements in the early stages for initiatives, whilst providing program and project managers with tools to strengthen their business cases or funding tranches.

How we can assist with your assurance planning?

1
Reduce the effort on programs and projects

All too commonly, at the initiation stage of a program or project, resources are light and the commitment to invest significant funds into a potential program or project(s) has not been made. However, this is exactly the stage when an assurance plan is required that provides business owners and key decision makers, with the confidence that assurance requirements have been considered, defined and captured, all within a succinct and easily understood assurance planning document. Our teams are specialist in delivering cost effective project assurance plans, that take the pressure off resource needs in these early stages, whilst providing program and project managers with tools to strengthen their business cases or funding tranches.

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.
