What is project assurance?

Project assurance is a discipline within project management that helps you to gain true oversight of the health of your projects.

The role is designed to supply your project board with a true visibility of how a project is progressing, any identified risk, and the expected outcomes of a project.

Broader than quality assurance, above all project assurance should be unbiased, independent and provide a true reflection of risk status, quality and project deliverables.

Built into every work-package we deliver, Reed Professional Services ensure that your projects deliver the outcomes you expect through our comprehensive project assurance.
