Project Health Check
The goal of a project health check is to ensure that the project or program is meeting optimal rigor levels through independent, objective, and non-invasive investigations and evaluations. There are four main objectives of our health check:
Project management is part science and part art. We measure and assess how effectively a project or program is being planned, managed and executed. We also examine key sociological factors impacting the project, including people management and expectations management. The result is a thorough, holistic assessment of the project’s overall health.
Enhance Likelihood of Total Success
Throughout the health check process, our evaluation is not simply “right” vs. “wrong.” Instead, we look for the optimal way of executing your intended goals by taking into consideration not only the implementation, but also the underlying environment, operational needs, and other factors that can contribute to or hinder project, program and portfolio success.
Improve Project Performance
As part of a project health check, we conclude the report with a list of sensible recommendations to improve the project, program and portfolio performance. Common recommendations include improving processes and tools; strengthening alignment between the project and strategic objectives; and most importantly, cultivating a strong relationship between sponsors and governance teams.
We employ a fact-based approach to risk management that clarifies the threats and opportunities that could potentially impact your project. Risk data is captured through interviews, discussions and surveys. Once these factors are identified, we help you develop sound plans to leverage the opportunities and mitigate the threats.
We take a high-touch approach to providing consulting services, which centers on three themes: high transparency, thorough communication, and no surprises. Our goal is to build mutual trust, which is focused on a foundation for a long-term relationship. We take pride in our ability to:
- Listen carefully to our clients and develop a deeper understanding of their needs.
- Evaluate data objectively and often from multiple perspectives.
- Work together to develop plans of action and to achieve agreements before implementation.
- Recommend improvement areas, occasionally nudging our clients.
- Deliver results and, depending upon engagement, empower our clients with the knowledge so they can perform the
same work in the future.
