Project Audit and Turnaround

Our Service

It is an unfortunate but unavoidable fact of business life that not all projects succeed. The trick is to catch it before it’s too late so that you don’t have to write off all that time, money and management effort spent.

Often the warning signs are there; you just have to be able to see them – and in the vast majority of cases, a so-called ‘failing’ project can be turned around to deliver benefits to the business.

The project management experts at Digital Works Group will identify the pressure points in your project and help you make the changes needed to get it back on track.

We do this by working hand-in-hand with our clients every step of the way, delivered via a proven systematic framework:

Our Typical Client

Our Project Audit and Turnaround service is for any client with a project that’s failing to deliver to its objectives – whether budget, timescales, quality standards or a combination of all three.

We have seen specific success in ecommerce, payments, online gaming, telecommunications and internet service providers.

Our Proven Methodology Framework


Through a combination of interview, data analysis and observation, we profile the project against industry-standard criteria to ascertain the root causes of the current situation.


Based on audit findings and business objectives, we provide detailed recommendations on how to continue the project with a proposed Turnaround Plan – with both ‘quick wins’ and a sustained improvement plan to completion.


This can take many forms, from training, coaching and mentoring project teams to directly taking over the project management and/or project sponsorship on a transitional or to-completion basis – the solution will be entirely driven by the client’s needs.


To effectively embed the lessons learned back into the organisation we focus on the underlying issues that led to the failing project. You should only need the Project Audit & Turnaround service once!

This framework is flexibly structured to allow clients to select the breadth and depth of the insight required, to meet their budget and needs.
