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 a 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.
