Global Process Audit – Project Stage Gates
As part of this oil company’s transformational change initiative, a new project stage-gate process had been introduced. The Global Process Owner required an independent view of the process, not only from a compliance perspective but also in terms of effectiveness and impact on the business, including factors such as scalability, flexibility and sustainability. A core team was assembled to enhance the existing audit process to meet some specific challenges.
Audits were assigned to different sub-teams to plan and carry out each country visit. Systematic data gathering ensured that detailed analysis could be undertaken on completion. An overall report was compiled with global and local themes and findings attributed to the process design, rollout, implementation and external factors.
