Course Overview

Organisations and government departments and their agencies, continue to be asked by their customers and governments to implement reforms ‘faster, better and for less‘. Organisations are meeting this challenge by adopting more agile approaches to transform their services and operations, and by doing so, are becoming better placed to support future reforms and strategic transformational agendas.

Organisational business owners, senior responsible officials/ owners (SRO) and executives, play a critical role in implementing outcomes that enable governments and organisations to deliver their reform agenda, which in many cases includes delivering digital services that exponentially improve the customer and/or citizen experience outcome.

To empower business owners, SROs and executives in achieving more successful program and project outcomes, the Digital Assurance Business Owner accreditation course has been designed to provide independent guidance on how best to ensure that critical transformational programs and enabling projects are successful, by focusing on the issues that are most important and maximising the benefits of both Agile and Gateway assurance.

Formally accredited by the Australian Institute of Project Management, the Digital Assurance Business Owner accreditation training course is the only Business Owner focused assurance accreditation, specifically designed to equip business owners, SROs and executives with:

  • a working understanding of modernised Gateway Assurance and Agile Assurance review processes
  • an understanding, through the entire lifecycle of a program and project, and how best to maximise the benefits of independent Gateway and Agile assurance
