Project Audit

 

An audit verifies the usage of Best Practices and customer standards in your programs or projects and creates transparency. By examining your documentation and standards combined with interviews, using Best Practice questionnaires, we analyze the as-is situation within your programs and projects. Then we formulate clear recommendations for improvements. Threon conducts Audits in a 3 phase approach:

The objectives of the Preparation Phase are to properly prepare and launch the audit project and to ensure that there is a common understanding between you and our consultants on the scope and objectives of the assessment. 

The Interview & Analysis Phase is the heart of the assessment since it will enable to collect all the information on actual project management practices. The objective of this second phase is also to analyze and consolidate all the information collected during the different interviews. 

The objective of the Recommendation & Report Phase is to develop recommendations to promote Best Practices in the area of Project Management and to gather all the results of the study into a final report. 

Tools & Techniques

Our consultants conducting project reviews, audits and assessments are experienced and certified Senior Project Managers.

Besides the application of techniques like structured interviews and result oriented workshops, we use standard interview questionnaires for Executives, for Project Managers and for the Project Management Office, structured along the 10 knowledge areas of the PMBOK® Guide.

Recommendations & Reporting

The audit will be terminated with the delivery of the final report, including recommendations and actions.

The elaboration of the recommendations will be done by comparing the actual project management practices with external Best Practices, based on our experience in Project Management and on the guidelines of the PMBOK® Guide.

The recommendations or improvement initiatives will be classified using a classification matrix (easiness of implementation versus potential of improvement). This classification will enable the priorization of improvement initiatives and the draft of a high level action plan for further development of your project management practices.

Typical content of the final report includes:

  • Analysis of the strengths and improvement areas of current roject management approach 
  • Comparison of internal Best Practices with international recognised Best Practices (PMBOK® Guide and Threon's maturity model)
  • Formulation of recommendations or improvement initiatives
  • High level action plan for the implementation of the proposed initiatives
