Due Diligence and Quality Assurance
Whether ingrained in corporate culture, or considered discretely in the context of transaction or project decision making, a focus on quality is a fundamental tenet of any professional organisation. Not paying appropriate attention to quality guarantees eventual failure, and typically sooner rather than later.
Even in the best of companies there nonetheless remains the risk that quality is "assured" through processes and procedures that are too narrowly focused, or are undertaken by staff too close to the subject, that in either case the larger context or critical assumptions are missed. At worst, these processes can become mere "tick-box" exercises.
Ulysses Petroleum Management brings the experience to conduct focused external quality assurance reviews linked to critical stage gate decisions (value assurance reviews), or to review entire corporate processes for effectiveness and whether they are being applied as intended.
