What is a Program Assessment?

A Program assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of a company’s programs. It is conducted to identify areas of improvement, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats and potential risks. The deliverables of a program assessment may vary depending on the scope of the assessment and the goals of the company. However, some common deliverables include:

  • Discovery
  • Current State Analysis
  • Gap Analysis including issues & risk assessment
  • Future State Recommendations
  • Report & Briefing

It is important to note that a program assessment is not a one-time event. It should be conducted periodically to ensure that the company’s programs are healthy and aligned with its business goals.

Our 5-step program assessment process offers comprehensive solutions for multiple business aspects, solving complex problems from the roots. The assessment usually take 2-6 weeks depending on the complexity of your programs, total stakeholders, and impact on your team involved.

Initial Estimates: Client will be charged at a time and materials rate for the Program Assessment.
