Using innovative technology and data analytics to consistently deliver successful project assurance

The Firewood Assurance Service Tool (FAST) allows you to design and implement your assurance framework and conduct assurance reviews consistently using industry best practice that is tailored to your needs

“9.9% of every dollar is wasted due to poor project performance-
that’s $99 million for every $1 billion invested”

Project Management Institute, 2018

The problem with traditional project assurance

  • Existing assurance procedures are time-consuming as there are often over complicated

  • Data is static and inaccessible because it is captured, analysed and reported on using spreadsheets

  • Management lack confidence as there is no consistency in assurance without a robust framework

  • Decisions take too long to make because it is difficult to make sense of all the information generated

  • Remedial actions to improve project performance are missed as there is no single point of accountability

  • There is a costly over-reliance on external assurance providers due to resource and skills shortages

  • Lessons from previous reviews are often forgotten in the PowerPoint slides they are written on

  • The root-cause of issues are not identified because findings are not supported with sources of evidence
