Project Management Methodology

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 · Posted in Business


The [ORGANIZATION] has established an Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO) to create and maintain a documented Project Management Methodology for use in all technology projects.
This methodology is designed to meet the needs of the various [ORGANIZATION] departments, provide for the required oversight, and be consistent with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI(R)) A Guide to Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK(R)). It is recognized that this Project Management Methodology must be scalable to meet the requirements of projects large and small. Various templates and outlines have been created to support this methodology.

The primary purpose of this document is to describe the framework that is used by the [ORGANIZATION] in initiating, planning, managing (controlling and executing), and closing technology projects. This document describes the methodology and references other documents, templates, and outlines that are used in support of the methodology.

By defining the methodology, this document is intended to provide a common point of reference for talking and writing about the practice of project management for technology projects within the [ORGANIZATION]. This common basis is intended to increase the awareness and professionalism of those charged with the responsibilities defined in the methodology. The roles of the Executive Committee, Sponsor, Project Manager, Stakeholders, Technical and Business Leads and other team members are considered Critical Success Factors (CSF). A common understanding of the requirements and the rationale behind those requirements are key factors for improving project results.
