Strategic and operational optimisation of the “Projects” business unit

Project scope

  • Objective: development of strategic and operational objectives, production of analyses and design of an organisation-wide project reporting structure
  • Expertise: clarity & effectiveness – project portfolio management, process and IT requirements management, project management tools, project and programme management (PMO)
  • Project duration: approx. 14 months


Our client came to us with a request for support in the structuring of its projects. There was a lack of clarity with regard to project prioritisation, partly due to the fact that there were no clearly defined, organisation-wide reporting structures for project management. The customer also lacked an effective management model for the entire business unit.


  • Process and IT requirements management
  • Project management tools
  • Project portfolio management
  • Project and programme management (PMO)

Assure Consulting contributed its specialist know-how in the areas of project management, strategy and objective development, steering and organisation concepts, project setup, stakeholder management, project monitoring and resource management.


A procedure for the development of strategic and operational objectives was developed, on the basis of which the first projects were initiated using the newly established project setup methods. These, in turn, were taken as the basis for project reporting and the management model for the entire business unit.

“What sets Assure consultants apart is their rare ability to integrate excellent methods and concepts that genuinely work into real-life teamwork settings. Their professionalism sets a new benchmark.”
