Building confidence in successful transformation – All Eyes on Trust
What you need to consider for your project portfolio prioritisation
Any transformation journey takes courage, imagination, hard work – and investment. Making sure all this yields the desired benefits involves managing a complex interplay of many factors, some of which are difficult to control.
Often there’s a fine line between project success and failure. PwC’s Transformation Assurance team is there to help you tread this line with confidence and deliver the benefits your stakeholders expect.
Having someone with an external view is always helpful, especially if they know exactly where to look to make sure things are running smoothly − and what to do if things do get off track. We’ve built on our experience of the transformation management process at many different organisations to build a systematic approach to assuring successful projects and programmes.
Opting for our outside support gives you assurance on every aspect of your transformation journey, bridging the confidence gap between project managers and the many stakeholders involved:
We help you with a review of all projects and programmes in your portfolio. The goal is to optimise your control processes and lay the foundations for the effective long-term management of your transformation efforts.
We do a maturity assessment to help you evaluate project portfolios, programmes and projects delivered with various degrees of success. The aim is to establish a benchmark to create transparency and identify areas where you might need to take additional measures.
We use regular risk-based reviews and action controlling to help you get your programmes on the right track. You’ll have best practice recommendations and concrete experience-based implementation plans to work with.
We help you to identify key programme and project risks at an early stage. You’ll be able to establish the right processes and tools to make sure the expected benefits are realised.
We run regular health checks to help you maintain control of programmes and projects. You’ll save costs because you’re better able to achieve and gauge the success of the planned milestones.
We do selective deep dives to give you insight and comfort on specific risk areas.
We help you stabilise and reposition your programme if it fails to meet expectations. The aim is to get restarted rapidly and make sure action plans and regular reviews are in place to ensure the long-term stability and success of the programme.
