Our bespoke risk mitigation framework

Our entire ecosystem of software testing services are powered by the AssureRMF risk mitigation framework and span risk assessment and planning, deployment of strategic improvements and implementation of enterprise-level excellence.

Delivered either as an end-to-end risk mitigation programme or a specific focused project, our services are bespoke, collaborative and business outcomes-centred.

You can access any of the three phases of AssureRMF individually to address specific issues that you have or, alternatively, set us the challenge of identifying why your delivery programmes aren’t meeting your expectations.

The three individual phases are; 

1. The Risk Lab

This takes the pulse of your delivery and analyses your operating model, identifying exactly where your quality challenges are and identify where your real delivery risk sits.

2. The Strategy Hub

Our experts work with you to develop a strategy to put control back into your delivery taking into account your strategic priorities and appetite for change.

3. Excellence Framework

We’ll deliver enterprise-level change to improve your delivery processes that are tailored to your organisation and pull in the best in class delivery teams that power our business.


"2i undertook an audit of our processes and approach adopted in a highly complex programme with some unique challenges. Providing us several key strategic recommendations enabled us to re-focus our approach enabling more efficient and effective processes required to deliver our products to the Ambulance Services in England, Scotland and Wales."

Risk Lab

We take the pulse of your delivery and analyse your operating model. We also assess the planned demand pipeline against your delivery capability, identifying any quality risks to your business.
Process & risk mapping through workshops, analysis and interviews with critical stakeholders we produce a SWOT analysis of your assurance and test capability to meet the demand across your product delivery lifecycle. We provide a benchmark against industry best practice and develop prioritised actionable insights.
We lead a structured planning workshop where we share the findings of the process & risk mapping stage, propose roadmap options and help project leaders to create a prioritised action plan.

Strategy Hub

We work with you to understand your strategic future priorities and the current blockers in achieving these.
We develop a plan for implementing improvement initiatives across your delivery model, focusing on key milestones, success factors, people & skills, governance, controls and procedures.
Robust metrics are put in place to ensure regular monitoring of delivery efficiency, benefits realisation, costs and other KPIs.

Excellence Framework

We ensure that continuous learning and improvement culture is embedded across all teams, including formalised training plans. We also equip your employees with the skills and capability to implement automation solutions across your enterprise.
We automate inefficient and repetitive processes and implement test practices that best deliver to your quality objectives and risk appetite.
Our industry-leading knowledge of open source, proprietary tools and technology solutions is utilised in support of your business ambition.
