Independent validation & verification


Technology projects frequently fail to finish on time, within budget or on target. Due to challenges such as unrealistic project planning, lack of internal quality control, inadequate project change management or incomplete test strategies, these projects often do not deliver their expected benefits. To overcome these challenges, your organization must be able to keep project scope under control and ensure that developed solutions meet the quality expectations of all stakeholders — before they are put into production.

Deloitte’s professionals work with you throughout your project to assess the effectiveness of both your project management and target deliverables. Our proven independent validation and verification framework relies on a risk-based approach to keep your project on time and on budget. To ensure your organization meets its project requirements, we help you:

  • Detect risks early and manage their impact throughout the project
  • Reduce development costs while maintaining high quality
  • Comply with regulations, company standards and industry best practices
  • Define, implement and monitor quality throughout the project
  • Measure your project delivery progress and ensure timely action in response to issues and newly identified risks
  • Choose the right partners or vendors for each project and minimize operational risk through effective contract negotiation and documentation
  • Consistently meet business requirements throughout the project
  • Efficiently handle changes to the project scope or requirements
  • Define and implement control mechanisms without delaying project execution
