  • Our Value Assurance – Four ways to improve project performance
    The key to success for maximizing the chances that IT projects deliver the expected value on time and within budget lies in mastering four broad dimensions, which combined make up a methodology for medium and large-scale IT projects that we call “value assurance”. The following elements make up this approach:

    • focusing on managing strategy and stakeholders instead of exclusively concentrating on budget and scheduling,
    • mastering technology and project content by securing critical internal and external talent,
    • building effective teams by aligning their incentives with the overall goals of projects,
    • excelling at core project-management practices, such as short delivery cycles and rigorous quality checks.
  • Project Phases – Independent Oversight
    Our high quality project managers will provide oversight and assurance including detailed engagement at each phase of a project lifecycle:

    • Initiation
      Rigorous investment appraisal, support to executive decision making
    • Definition and Planning
      Assurance of the scope, plan, charter, capacity to execute, make vs buy, resources and priorities as well as defining project metrics and KPI’s. The project communications plan is a key feature.
    • Launch and Execution
