Keeping you finger on the pulse of IT projects

IT Programme Healthcheck

Very few IT Programmes ever run smoothly from conception to final implementation.  Peru’s Programme Healthcheck provides a rapid and pragmatic diagnostic of struggling or stalled IT projects. It delivers a realistic assessment of a programme's chances of recovery, re-start or maybe a planned closed down that can recover some investment.

Commitment

Struggling to a standstill?

When key IT projects and programmes begin to struggle, organisations often react by committing more resources to try and steer them back on course. This can become a road to nowhere, with persistent causal issues, structural factors or even political enviroment repeatedly thwarting investment in the project.

Peru is committed to help break the “rescue mission” cycle by delivering a pragmatic, business-focused healthcheck of a major IT project or programme that is often critical to supporting business growth, enabling new services, or providing new capabilities.

Substance

The heart of the matter

Our Programme Healthcheck, typically delivered over a 2-3 week period, uses specially developed set of checklists and diagnostic toolstools to flush-out issues and identify their underlying casual factors.

By examining key focus areas - such as governance and change control systems, testing and monitoring, constraints and dependencies - Peru Consulting rapidly builds a true picture of the programme.

The findings are compiled into weekly reports and Programme Healthcheck dashboards to pinpoint the key areas of risk and other internal and external factors that can cause IT programmes to stall or fail to hit the target.
