PRINCE2® Project Assurance

Consultancy overview

Projects frequently fail by stealth, with problems accumulating over time and gradually eroding the Business Case initially developed. All too often, the realisation that a project is in trouble sets in too late to take effective action, and the business finds itself committed to funding unplanned work, fire-fighting unanticipated risks and struggling to cope with an overwhelming pace of requirements change.

The Project Assurance role in a PRINCE2® environment is key to avoid these problems and for ensuring that the standards of the method are embedded. The term Project Assurance is used to describe the processes of continual audit of the project management method and the execution of the project. The Project Board is responsible for this Project Assurance role.

In many instances the Project Board members are from a business function and therefore do not necessarily have a project management background. The Project Assurance role is in this case likely to be performed by an experienced project management consultant.

This important function is concerning best practice primely carried out by somebody who is independent of the Project Manager, and indeed the project teams, so as to maintain an independent view of assessing the project and the standard of project management applied to the project.

Some organizations experience difficulty in finding appropriate resources to carry out this role, and this is where consideration can be given for Project Assurance to be carried out by our consultants.

An additional motivation and purpose of our service is to release the Project Board from the burden of Project Assurance by undertaking the delegated role of inspecting the project.
