Step 1 - Engagement and scheduling the health check

Before beginning the health check process there needs to be time to communicate the purpose of the exercise to the stakeholders. The process must have the buy-in and commitment of all involved to deliver the correct outcome. The health check process needs to be communicated as an educational exercise providing a breakdown of the current status of the projects or programmes. The outcome should be a better understanding of what’s going well and if there is any need for improvement.
