“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
