The Project Health Check (PHC) is an independent reflective assessment and learning exercise of the status of a project to identify what is going well and highlights the areas of improvement and potential developments during project execution.
The PHC has been based on subjects as described in PMBOK®, PRINCE2®, AACE®, the learnings as gained from Shell Open University and many years of experience in Project Organizations and Project Management Consultancy.
We currently included over 330 questions / statements for the above-mentioned subjects. In average it’s about twenty questions / statements per subject. We included default weigh factors which of cause can be changed to tailor the tool to the needs of the project or organisation.
The PHC has been initially designed for starting a project in the early Basic Engineering Phase. The current version of the Project Health Check can be used for project gate passing, as well for the detailed design and engineering and early construction phase. Monitoring the improvements over time is quite easy because we can easily compare the outcomes of different analysis.
