Project risk

Confidence in completion

Independent assurance is the best way to uncover hidden risks and avoid project failure.

Although project success in general is increasing, more than 20 per cent still fail*. This reinforces the need to continuously assess projects against their objectives.

To mitigate against project failure, delays or cost overruns, project sponsors and executives can use independent assurance to help get projects back on track and keep them there.

Deloitte’s project risk team gives you the know-how to independently evaluate projects and provide insights for successful execution.

We prevent project control failures before they occur by taking a continuous assurance approach, using risk-centric predictive analytics and detecting underlying system risks. This boosts business change process management and leads to better outcomes.

Independent of vendors and other third parties, we work with you to:

  • Uncover hidden risks
  • Advise and educate project teams
  • Ensure project accountability and attention to best practices
  • Plan, execute and control projects
  • Protect project investment
  • Reduce risk to ongoing business.

We have the people, the knowledge, the methodologies, the tools and the track record to help you minimise, mitigate, manage and ultimately overcome project risks.
