Measures for Assuring Projects

Author
The toolkit has been developed by the APM Assurance Specific Interest Group (SIG), a group of professionals with diverse backgrounds in the field of project and programme management and assurance, to help project professionals deliver assurance in a more consistent way.

Aim
A gap was perceived which drove a desire to establish more consistency around the language being used, definitions of assurance terms, a framework capable of wide application, and outputs from assurance work. The toolkit including this guidance is the product of the sum of experience, skills and knowledge of the group who produced it applied to address this challenge.

Measures for Assuring Projects consists of a summary sheet for rating project assurance and examples of evidence that support a good assurance measure score.

Lead authors: Tim Podesta and Geoff Newton.

Authoring team: John Caton, Andrew Elliot, Kevin Forster, Roger Hankey, Julian Harris, Das Mootanah, Colin Pascoe, Graham Shreeve, Philip Thomas and David Youll.

Editors: Peter Deary and Roy Millard.
