- Large projects face more internal and external scrutiny, especially for public sector organizations.
- Many strategic projects today involve new technology, which can add complexity, time, and cost.
- Often projects experience compliance issues, delays, and budget overruns in implementation that are not diagnosed for root causes until a post-implementation review is done. The results, though beneficial, are reactive rather than proactive.
- Regular IV&V reviews enable continual feedback and improvement for the given project.
- Choose an advisor, not an auditor. While both would verify the same project parameters, stakeholders will prefer to engage with an advisor who will seek to improve project health rather than an auditor who will seek to report project gaps.
- Apply IV&V recommendations to improve ongoing project delivery.
