APM Assurance Specific Interest Group (SIG)

The Assurance SIG was launched in 2008 aiming to be the centre of excellence within APM for all issues connected with project and programme assurance. It works in several workstreams directed by its management team. 

These workstreams include the creation of a knowledge base; assurance definitions; interfaces and developing lasting relationships; project auditing; measures for assuring projects; and integrated assurance – developing and sharing best practice.

  • RAG Status: a tool not a weapon
  • Date: 4 August 2020
  • A RAG status can be a tool or it can be a weapon, but I don’t believe it can be both. The simple red/amber/green colour-coding gives both a snapshot of a project and highlights the areas to focus on. Whatever your role on a project or programme, the RAG status should quickly tell you what you need to know and the direction of travel, particularly if you track the trends.

  • Can you benchmark assurance?
  • Date: 10 June 2020
  • Yes you can, based on the experiences of the APM Assurance Specific Interest Group (SIG) and its guide Measures for Assuring Projects. The guide was first issued in 2016 and has been widely read and referenced. Now is the time to build on that success and refresh the guidance to make it even more useful to assurance practitioner and project professionals.
