Programme Assurance

Specific Topic Reviews:

We can also offer specific expertise to support our assurance services, including:

  • skills and capability
  • property and FM
  • digitalisation of services
  • technology transformation
  • procurement and supply chain changes


There will be a one-month lead time to set up the assessment, followed by a further 4 weeks to undertake the assessment.



Service Overview:

The intent is for a review to be a positive experience, not an inquisition, therefore we empahsise the positives as well as looking for potentially vulnerable areas. We are also doing this to help minimise the risk of failure for you, not only will we provide an honest appraisal, but we will also seek to share knowledge opnely on how we think an aspect could be improved, not just provide lists of recommendations.

On an assurance review we approach it from two angles:

  • we look at the documentation to understand the programme and to see how well it is being managed.
  • we interview the people involved to find out how they perceive it.

On the first review we recommend undertaking a more detailed approach. This enables a good understanding of the concepts and a more detailed report, otherwise each review tends to throw up things that were missed at the start. A lighter touch can then be deployed at key points to check the direction of travel. The number of interviews depends on the size of the programme. We would expect to interview the sponsors, programme board and the team leaders from around the programme, pulling this information together with the documentation review.
