Many organizations have difficulty delivering projects. Part of the
reason is that managers and sponsors have a hard time understanding the
true state of a project. In many cases, the project runs independently
until it becomes obvious that there are problems with schedule, cost or
quality. At that point (when it is obvious) it is usually too late to
meet the original expectations.
Project audits can help determine the true state of a project, and
whether the project looks to be on track to finish successfully. Audits
can also specifically point out whether good project management rigor
and structure is in place.
This second point is very important – perhaps more so than the first.
the project manager has a good foundation (Project Definition (Charter)
the project manager has a grasp of the schedule and budget required to
complete the work and
the project manager is proactively managing schedule, budget, risk,
scope, quality, communication, etc.
there is a high
probability that the project will be successful.
addition to understanding the state of individual projects, an ongoing
project auditing service can help an organization better understand
whether standard project management processes are being followed. If
they are not, it may highlight the need for additional training,
reinforcement of the standards and stronger governance.
