Project Lifestyle Governance

Why it’s important

The governance of the project life cycle and the associated control of the decision-making process between each phase of a project, are fundamental to not only the success of the project itself, but ultimately the success of your organisation.

A fully-integrated, efficient, automated governance solution will enhance your control of your projects, drive out waste and offer transparent accountability throughout the project lifecycle.

The Ishango Solution

Ishango has developed an online, fully configurable phase stage gate model. The tool provides the ability to build phase and stage gate reviews to suit any organisation.  This includes the definition of the individual success criteria for each phase, RACI (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed) for each action and automated workflow and associated notifications, to control the delivery of each action and each stage gate review.

It also digitally facilitates the decision making process for reviewing and releasing stage gates reviews by recording the outcome of reviews including acceptance, rejection and proceed at risk.


Dashboard reporting is also available to provide a simple overview of the status of each project and the level of completion / compliance with each action and with each gateway review.


Our Phase Stage Gate model fully integrates with our digital management system so that standard company templates are easily accessible. It can also be purchased as a standalone tool. The platform also integrates into Office 365 which facilitates the storage of completed documentation that demonstrates compliance.  This provides a fully traceable audit trail of compliance with your project success criteria.
