project assurance

Our personnel are highly experienced in programme management, knowledge of large-scale change and transformation programmes and business operations.  We use a dedicated project maturity assessment tool, “Cyclops”, to compare your project against best practice and provide pragmatic recommendations.

Our success

Assurance / Health checks of large transformation programmes typically take place at major gates including after shaping, scoping and planning and at later significant programme gates, such as technical specification, business readiness, etc..   We have delivered assurance activities to provide senior stakeholders an objective assessment of delivery confidence that are well received and provide accurate, insightful and relevant recommendations.   The Greyfly team has managed and directed successful complex transformation-led programmes from start to finish.  This means the team is well placed to identify what is going well and to make pragmatic recommendations for improvement.

Our experts use their knowledge, best practice techniques and Greyfly’s in-house tool “Cyclops” to provide assurance for project success.  We are highly motivated with a combination of enthusiasm and respect and we offer professional delivery of “Critical Friend” assessments.

Our approach

Our process normally follows 4 steps:

Kick off, scheduling, gather and review of the key project documents;

Scheduled structured interviews, followed by targeted clarification meetings;

Analysis of findings and issue and presentation of draft and final Output recommendation reports;

Follow-up meetings to ensure recommendations are implemented.

Cyclops

Aligned to the foundations for project success, Greyfly uses a specially developed tool to assess maturity and likely project success. During assurance, Cyclops is populated iteratively based on data identified from document reviews, stakeholder interviews and any other specific related output. Based on best practise bench-marking and machine learning, we set the priority and maturity targets for each foundation stone.
