Governance and Assurance


Successful projects have one thing in common, strong governance and independent assurance. However, there is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’. History has shown that a ‘tick & flick’ approach can lead to ‘successful failures’ where projects have successfully ticked the time, cost and scope boxes but have failed to deliver significant value to government or the organisation and more importantly, to its citizens and customers.

Gyre Digital understands that every organisation is different and success isn’t guaranteed by simply prescribing to a set of rigid methodologies and practices. Successful project delivery in not an exact science, it is part art, part craft and a successful project manager must be able to balance the application of management and leadership. There is a third skill that is needed for successful project delivery that is not easy to teach, articulate or document. It is the tacit knowledge that comes from wisdom and know-how. With over 40 years’ experience in both the government and corporate sectors, managing multi-million dollar programs and projects, our principle consultants know that understanding the politics and culture of an organisation is critical to success.

The team at Gyre Digital can provide expert advice and assistance to any organisation seeking to build a robust and flexible governance and assurance structure. We will help you build practices that will support your organisations program to sustain its ability to deliver its promised value. Our experienced consultants will help your managers assess the program’s current state and adjust content and direction if necessary. We will also provide the tools and techniques that will empower the management team to refine the definition of success and to maintain alignment with an evolving business strategy.
