Is your business-critical program going well?

Steer clear of the causes of program failure.

A successful program healthcheck is based on hard evidence.

The Mentor Healthcheck is a comprehensive analytical assessment that determines the health of your business-critical program.

We use it to flush out the gaps and find the root causes of challenges that could cause potential program performance issues, long before you experience expensive program replans and time overruns.

Conducted by our team of experts, we analyse your program using our proven execution framework – The MentorBlueprint – and arm you with facts, evidence, and remedial actions to steer off-track programs back into calmer waters.

Dramatically reducing the risk of program failure.
