Project Health Check
Faster and efficient program and project delivery for quicker business returns
Before small problems become large ones, do you understand how your projects are really tracking against their cost, quality and schedule objectives?
Projects that fail, or only partially deliver on their financial and commercial objectives, are expensive and wasteful applications of your business’s time and resources and will undoubtedly adversely affect the bottom line to a greater or lesser degree.
Our Project Health Check will quickly provide you with an independent snapshot of a project’s progress against your plan, at a chosen time. It will identify what has been successfully delivered, as well as exposing where your project’s performance may be at risk.
What is a Project Health Check?
A Project Health Check analyses the essential components of your project to determine how healthy it is tracking towards its stated objectives. It is an independent and non-threatening assessment. The deliverable is an objective assessment of your project’s current status and its prospects of achieving the desired business outcomes.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a great example where a Project health Check was needed!
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is known around the world for its famous tilt. Although it was designed to be perfectly vertical being only 55.86 meters tall it is the smallest “tower” to achieve worldwide recognition. It started to lean during the early stages of construction commencing in the year 1173, weighing 14,500 tonnes. No wonder the clay foundation could not handle the massive weight!
Europe’s most famous monument was the result of a slight miscalculation and although many factors have contributed to the lean, the decision of where to build the tower resulted in the original tilt.
The tower took over 800 years to completely finish with construction halted for 100 years! During this time, engineers hoped that the clay beneath the tower would settle and harden enough to permit further construction!
Today, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is more than five metres off perpendicular, although architects, engineers and even dentists have tried to correct it after construction
