How we helped:
We have designed and implemented the risk process for one of the most significant construction projects for the MOD in decades. We have continued to work collaboratively with numerous stakeholder groups to re-design the project’s risk process and undertake schedule and cost risk analysis to inform wider business decisions, investments, and MOD scrutiny.
We drove change into the risk reporting function by removing overly complex charts and graphs and moving away from language that only makes sense to risk managers. We helped shift focus away from carrying out ‘tick-box’ risk reporting to delivering genuinely useful analytics to the project team at the point of need.
What we delivered:
- Comprehensive risk management database shared on the customer’s instance of Active Risk Manager (ARM).
- Day-to-day risk management support including but not limited to facilitating risk reviews, pro-active mitigation tracking and leading monthly risk updates with the Head of Delivery.
- Bespoke suite of risk-related confidence models to calculate remaining costs, uncertainties, and contingencies, as well as schedule risk analysis (using Primavera Risk Analysis (PRA)).
- Support to successfully pass 2 major external audits from the Independent Projects Authority (IPA).
