Project Health Checks & Recovery

Project managers, sponsors and the project team are often so involved in the day-to-day activities that they can fail to recognise the true status of a project. Upcoming problems can go unnoticed or even disregarded.

The purpose of the project health check is to gain independent assessment of how well the project or programme is performing in accordance with its stated objectives and how well it adheres to organisational processes or standards.

Our consultants will agree the desired project outcomes and then review the plans and activities against the key project management disciplines (scope/time/budget/quality/risks/issues/human resources/communication/procurement and stakeholder management).

The cost of fixing an issue is much higher than the cost of preventing it in the first place. The benefits of a Project Health Check are:

  • Early warning identification of potential issues that may (or have already) derailed the Project
  • Reducing the risk of project failure by identifying recovery activities required to get the Project back on track
  • Further, conducting checks on projects can help with the development of future projects and programs, by identifying common problems and solutions and applying them to future projects

“The cost of fixing an issue is much higher than the cost of preventing it in the first place.”
