Assurance services provide great mitigators for ensuring that the potential for failed delivery is minimised.
Avec provides program assurance throughout the delivery process and can extend this to supplement existing teams with additional support capability either on a full time or ad hoc basis.
Avec through its engagement model has a vested interest in predictable delivery. In order to improve the chances of success Avec recommends deploying a program assurance team.
Where problem areas are identified, corrective action will be suggested and in some instances the assurance team will supplement in resources to improve overall delivery.
