“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” Psalm 139: 23-24 (NIV)
In the programme management office, we carry out project audits. The essence of the audit is to ensure the projects and all the associated documentation, processes and essential health KPIs are on track, if not you help the project manager bring it back on track and coach the project manager to develop and plug any skills gap. This exercise is usually misinterpreted as a litmus test of the project manager’s capability and competency which may lead to discipline or negative performance reporting. For this reason, many project managers dread project audits. In same spirit, we believers don’t like to search within ourselves in case we don’t like what we find. It is essential for us to search within ourselves and glorify God for the good qualities we have and recognise the areas that need improvement and give it to God.
