Our Approach

Assurity Consulting starts with Business Analysis. We work with you, gaining a complete understanding of your organisation and its processes, and identifying opportunities for improvement. Then we offer a complete set of tools and solutions for ensuring operational excellence and the delivery of lasting value. Across all we do, Assurity Consulting applies lean approaches and agile methodologies, achieving rapid outcomes for your business.

Our Approach

Enterprise and Strategic Business Analysis

Before embarking on substantial enterprise projects, Strategic and Enterprise Business Analysis validates core challenges and validates potential solutions. Identify strategic gaps, eliminate unrealistic expectations, define success factors and achieve confidence in investment outcomes with thorough independent review. Our neutral consultants challenge assumptions, distil problems and demonstrate benefits using Lean BA methodologies.

Business Case Creation

Looking for an independent view on your company’s next major move? Assurity’s Business Analysis team assesses business cases, regulatory and compliance frameworks, and evaluates Business Problems/Opportunities. Outputs from Commercial / Strategy Analysis include feasibility indicators, return on investment calculations, and provides options for the way forward.

Tender as a Service

A detailed and accurate procurement tender is the first step towards project success. Assurity Consulting’s independent Procurement as a Service defines, creates and issues a Requests for Information, Purchase or Quote, then evaluates the responses. Assurity enterprise analysts offer proven results in government, private and public procurement, developing thorough tenders based on standard and custom templates with requirements and vendor response matrix and methodology.

High Level Requirements and Epics

Clarity is gold for any enterprise project. Assurity Consulting establishes High-Level Requirements and Epics, describing the problem or opportunity, defining scope (and out of scope) and setting criteria for the business, key stakeholders and/or customers. A comprehensively scoped project sets up for delivery success. Assurity Consulting’s enterprise analysts create testable and traceable epics mapped to business objectives/initiatives or themes, with a value dashboard outlining essential criteria and business outcomes.

Detailed Requirements and User Stories

Establish how people interacts with products or services in the customer’s voice with Detailed Requirements and User Stories generated by Assurity Consulting’s skilled analysts. Leave assumptions at the door; Assurity engages directly with the people who matter – the end user – breaking Detailed Requirements into functional and non-functional requirement areas. Our enterprise analysts write testable, traceability requirements underpinning quality delivery and maximum value for your customers.

BA Capability Development

Boost the capability of in-house Business Analyst teams and bring their skills to the full attention of your business. Assurity Consulting believes shared knowledge achieves lasting success; working alongside our consultants, your team benefits from their cross-industry experience tackling diverse business challenges. Assurity Consulting is recognised as trusted national training provider with a track record of success developing custom programmes tailored to specific requirements.

Process Modelling

Improve business agility and operational performance with detailed maps of business processes at enterprise and operational levels. Essential for digital and other transformational projects, or as a health check for business-as-usual, Assurity Consulting’s process modelling identifies and reduces waste and redundancy, avoids reworks, eliminates job frustration and delivers efficiency improvements. Establish ownership of and gain detailed insights on key business processes and achieve lasting transformational change with the introduction of continuous improvement methods. A defined and modelled business process architecture brings clarity to business processes, activities, business units, and stakeholders involved, delivering the insights necessary for meaningful adaptation to understand the current state and move towards desired future state. Assurity Consulting’s seasoned consultants apply industry best practices, methodologies and principles including APQC, BPMN and PDCA.

Requirements Management and Traceability

Requirements are the foundations on which new capabilities are built. In Assurity Consulting’s skilled hands, Requirements Management and Traceability guides project teams with clear links between the signed off plans and the capabilities delivered. Traceability links all project lifecycle events including backlog refinement, sprint planning, estimation, prioritisation, and elaboration. The results are projects aligned with requirements, and delivery matching expectations with clear work plans demonstrating how current work moves towards desired final outcomes.

“…the initial Process Optimisation training engagement proved an ideal introduction to Assurity’s methods and approach. This brought a lot of thinking processes to light and established the right mindset for looking at our delegations.”
