A leading global insurer with a large cross border portfolio of technology and business programmes were at risk of losing control and oversight.
The main challenge was to understand the business-critical projects, and associated global dependencies, in a period of increased scrutiny on spending whilst delivering on an increasing number of business driven technology projects.
A structured Programme Office approach was proposed to control dependencies, scope and budgets whilst instilling a central governance process.
We deployed a specialist advisory programme consultant to review the processes and set up a new governance framework with better oversight across all projects, with a focus on project dependency outcome assessment and spend control.
As a result we provided the client with a robust framework approach that allowed a focus on delivering whilst maintaining budgets, and ensuring the pipeline of project work had better end to end governance. Projects identified that were at risk of failing the programme were reviewed and delivered whilst maintaining a focus on spend at a programme level.
