Risk & Project Health Check
Nova Systems understands the special needs of integrating technical and programmatic risks in high technology environments. Our consultants are experienced in managing risk across the full range of a projects lifecycle including both technical, operational and managerial.
The Australian Standard for Risk Management, AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009, has become a globally accepted standard for implementing risk management at any level of an organisation. Nova applies this methodology to identify, assess and control risks in a process that is tailored to the size, nature and needs of a client. Risks cannot be managed unless they have been identified. Continual improvement cannot be demonstrated unless the risks are continually measured. Nova can assist your project to develop and implement frameworks to manage the process of identifying, measuring and controlling risk.
Nova Systems have significant experience reviewing, assessing, implementing and monitoring risk programs required to implement complex systems and capabilities. Our understanding of the integration of complex systems and the interrelated risks and issues is unsurpassed.
Project Health Checks
Nova Systems has had significant experience in Government, Defence and Industry at reviewing projects of concern due to the trust we share with our clients. Nova applies practical approaches to reviewing, assessing, implementing change to getting projects back to health. The purpose of the Project Health-check for Nova is to measure both compliance and effectiveness of a specific project against the sponsors requirements. Nova’s approach is through a general audit to assess the project’s ability to meet its objectives and compares the project management activities against the organisation’s project management method.
Project Health Checks are only carried out by Nova’s most experienced consultants who have had considerable project management experience and know what to look for. Project Health Checks cover; checking compliance with corporate policies and governance for managing projects, reviewing the project against project management good-practice, assessing performance to-date against original baseline and the ability to meet current forecasts.
Conducting Project Health Checks will help organisations ensure the organisations methodology is being used correctly, the effectiveness of a project can be measured, risks are being actively tracked and managed, a process for feedback from the project team exists and corrective actions are being captured and implemented.
