Program Health Check
Program success is achieved through confidence in the health of a program and related projects—and by anticipating potential issues early enough to resolve them. Yet program sponsors, managers and team members are often too focused on operational details to recognize risks and issues. With an independent Program Health Check providing a detailed, factual and impartial analysis, your executive teams gain the confidence to proceed with a new program—or the reassurance to them that a program in progress is being implemented effectively.
As part of our world-leading Program Health Check service, you gain a proprietary Program Health Diagnostic (PhD) tool—a quick, simple way to obtain quantitative, visual and easily assimilated output.
At a glance, we identify improvement areas that will yield the greatest benefit, then take action to remediate those areas. You can obtain a Program Health Check at any stage in your program’s lifecycle—ensuring that a rigorous program framework is in place to provide a success platform for the Future of Work.
When to Use Program Health Check
You can benefit most from a Program Health Check when your project or program is:
- Failing to deliver expected business benefits
- Part of a frequently changing organization structure
- Undergoing schedule slippage or scope creep
- Experiencing escalating costs or diminishing benefits
- An exemplar, in which help is needed to capture all key learning points
Call for a Program Health Check at any time during the program lifecycle, to focus on different aspects of the program during its multiple stages.
