Lifecycle assurance provides an independent, fact-based assessment of whether a project or program is set up in a way that gives it the best chance of success and to deliver on its stated benefits, during the project understand whether it is on track to deliver its benefits and once the project or program is completed, an assessment of how well it performed against its objectives and what learnings can be carried forward and applied to future initiatives.
All projects and programs have risks, issues and challenges. Some of these are internal to the project or program and some are due to the pace and complexity of also navigating the organisation and/or industry whilst trying to deliver change. Regardless of how particular risks and issues arise within a project or program, it is critical for them to be identified as early as possible and for plans to be put into place to either mitigate them or minimise their impact.
The value identifying and addressing problems early versus the potential cost of being blindsided more than outweighs the cost of assurance activities. Independent lifecycle assurance also ensures that organisational politics and stakeholder relationships don’t get in the way of the facts.
