Independent Project Review

If you are an experienced professional driven to succeed and dedicated to providing quality services we’d like to meet you!



Paradigm is a leader in Independent Programme / Project Review (IPR) Services (Click here for more info). We have successfully completed IPRs for some of Western Canada’s leading public entities, contributing directly to the identification and resolution of challenging problems. The IPR can be utilized in three ways:

1. Readiness Assessment


The Readiness Assessment is designed to evaluate projects at the earliest stages of development to ensure they are positioned for success. With the readiness assessment we aim to:

  •  Validate Governance & Management Model
  •  Ensure Sufficiency of Status Reporting & Communications
  •  Anticipate Challenges & Take Pro-Active Action
  •  Engage the Team

2. Programme / Project Health Check


The health check provides a low-impact, minimally disruptive opportunity to validate the status of the programme or project, and proactively address any emerging issues. The health check includes:

  •  Low-Impact Validation of Status
  •  Questionnaire-Based Assessment of 8 Key Programme / Project Areas
  •  Assessment of overall Programme / Project Risk
  •  Limit the Impact of Emerging Project Issues

3. Programme / Project Review


The review is designed to provide a comprehensive assessment of your programme or project, including root cause analysis of issues and the development of a plan of action to get things back on track. Within the review, we will:

  •  Provide Objective Answers to Challenging Programme / Project Questions
  •  Engage the Team & Stakeholders
  •  Conduct Complete Review of Documentation
  •  Create a Plan of Action

What Our Clients Say


We were very pleased with the program review that your team did for us. The Project Health Assessment provided us with a clear and concise picture of the issues and challenges that currently exist on our project. The Paradigm approach and recommendations have provided us with a clear and tangible path forward.


Working with the consulting team from Paradigm on our project has been a great experience. It is obvious that they are highly skilled in their respective areas and they always bring a positive attitude to the workplace. What I appreciated most about working with the Paradigm team was their ability to cut through the unpredictable politics of our project, keep everyone happy, and deliver good results. Paradigm are very good at balancing the needs of the business, while striving to deliver the project on time and on budget.


The Business Analysts from paradigm are extremely passionate about their work and completely immersed themselves in our business. Their wealth of experience in business process modelling, along with their multi-disciplined mindset, has resulted in quality deliverables for our project. We look forward to working with Paradigm on the next phases of our project.


We have a relatively long history with Paradigm. Working with our employees, a team of developers led by Paradigm developed and implemented the new system that also had to go-live in conjunction with three other government agencies. This all went off without a hitch!! The success of the project led to the creation a system that was the first in Canada. Their motto should be: "They get it done!"


You should take great pride in having helped deliver a system the size of ours. A lot of organizations have tried and failed to deliver systems of this size. This has been a long journey since receiving approval. We now have a great system to take into the future.


From my experience while working with Paradigm's consultants and participating in business process workshops, they have the experience, the leadership and skills to maximize the workshop objectives, quality and deliverables. They have been able to quickly familiarize themselves with our business objectives and our business processes. They have become part of the team here and are helping us to take our lengthy list of process improvement ideas and turn them into fully operational programs, following a sound business process management methodology, guided by solid project management practices.

I specifically requested Paradigm for my project, based on their ability. It is a large complex project. If Paradigm were on every one of my projects, life would be good.


Paradigm has added considerable value to the organization in terms of the leadership provided and the knowledge brought to this area. I would definitely work with them again and would recommend them to others.


Paradigm brought excellent knowledge and Business Analyst skills to our project and was very helpful as they took the lead on delivering the key requirements and test planning parts of the project. Paradigm is very strong at grasping the 'real' problems behind the issues that came up.
