- Verification & Validation Tests
- Business Unit Program Plans
- Business Unit Program Assessments
Verification and Validation are independent tests that are used together for checking that a program document meets requirements and specifications of the supporting program and that it fulfills its intended purpose. Verification is performed prior to revisions and is previously discussed above. Validation tests are a measure of effectiveness of the implementation. This is more subjective an asks, “Does this document meet the purpose and objectives intended?”
Like Programmatic Audits, Business Unit Program Assessments are performed on the documentation, records, and the effectiveness of the performance practitioners who are using the program but at a user level. This natural extension of the Program Plan drives sustainability of the larger program. This assessment relates to the program philosophy, values, and principles; essential functions; and core activities specified in the practice profiles. The Program Assessments correlate actions with intended outcomes creating a measurable metric. This can be done repeatedly in an ad hoc manner or as part of a routine revision cycle per the individual Business Unit Program Plan.
