Gap Analysis

Gap Analysis

A Gap Analysis is a type of assessment necessary in all those cases where we have to search for the reasons lying behind significant deviations between some key data or variables of a project.

The model that we adopt follows these steps:

  • Identify the area to be analysed and the targets to reach.
  • Consider the plan by establishing a baselinewithin the project plan (scope, time table, costs, resources, risks, quality, procurement).
  • Compare the current state against the plan. What causes contributed to failure to reach project targets.
  • Quantify the deviation.
  • Identify the causes of the deviation. After having searched for the potential causes, we define the contribution of each one of them to the gap with a Pareto analysis.
  • Provide recommendations. We will conclude our intervention by providing a plan to fill the highlighted deviations while urging a change on “what to change” and how to do it.

Advantages of the Gap Analysis

1. Guarantee that the requirements of the project have been met
2. Find areas of weakness and shortcomings to deal with
3. Discover the differences in perception of facts as compared to reality
4. Provide information to support management’s decision-making process
5. Identify the points on which to focus attention and resources
6. Give priority to the corrective measures to implement
