Methodology Defined The science of method, or orderly arrangement Webster A system of practices, techniques, procedures, and rules used by those who work in a discipline PMBOK 3 Business Case for PM Methodology Todays business environment is unforgiving Customers have higher expectations, seek increased time efficiencies, and demand quantum performance improvements IT projects are not historically tied to business success--information oriented; least PM mature IT efforts need documented path and procedures to better manage and control projects Project methodologies offer proven techniques

to manage scope, cost, and task execution 4 Benefits of Project Management Higher project management maturity leads to better project management A positive correlation exists between higher project management maturity and cost and schedule performances An established and systematic approach to PM has been proven to improve IT project success to greater than 34% (industry average)--improved quality is recognized 5 Purpose of SOM PM Methodology To provide a comprehensive set of procedures and techniques to the State's

project managers to ensure high-quality and repeatable results. 6 State of Michigan Project Management Elements Project Management Methodology, Project Management Training, Project Scheduling Tool Expertise, and the Project Management Center of Excellence establish the key elements of the State of Michigan project management support infrastructure. 7 State of Michigan Methodology Goals Assist in the managing and monitoring of the

State of Michigans government agencies Information Technology (IT) projects. Provide for, and institutionalize, formal project management practices into all areas of State government. 8 Project Management Methodology The State of Michigan Methodology is the foundation for building and identifying the types of procedures needed. The PM methodology document describes project phases and processes to be accomplished. The methodology is driven by the use of templates that guide the user through processes necessary to complete activities. The methodology grows with maturity. 9

The Project Management Methodology document describes the processes in detail. 16 PMM Templates Templates are the deliverables of the processes and thereby establish

standardization for project activities. Templates integrate the methodology into the everyday project environment being conducted at the State of Michigan.

Project Charter Approval Gives the go-ahead (approval) to expend resources on this project Obtaining signatures assigns responsibility! 28 Planning Phase Initiation The purpose of the Project Planning Control Phase is to establish requirements, define tasks, build schedules, assess risks, institute quality standards, describe deliverables, develop costs, and to document the work organization.

The process entails the identification of the proper needs and structure for organizing and managing the project. Planning Execution Closeout *Note: Some Control activities occur in the Planning Phase. 29 Planning Progression Planning Control Core Processes

Planning Control Execution Closeout These interactive phases deal with the actual development of the project product. Project Execution focuses on participating in, observing, and analyzing work being done. Project Control manages processes in order to compare actual to planned performance and takes corrective action when differences exist. 41 Status

Initiation Planning Control Execution Closeout The Project Closeout Phase involves the administrative and financial efforts needed to close out a project. The product is also transferred to the customer. *Note: Some Control activities occur in the Closeout Phase. 48

Post Implementation Evaluation Report A Post Implementation Evaluation Control Report documents successes and failures of the project. It provides a historical record of the planned and actual budget schedule. The report contains recommendations for other projects of similar size and scope. The report documents valuable lessons learned. Closeout 49 Obtain Project Sign-Off Meet with stakeholders to get their final

approval of the project They are the reason for the project existing in the first place Their approval signals the projects completion! 50 In Summary What is methodology Justification and benefits of a project methodology Purpose of the State Project Management Methodology How does the State Project Management Methodology work? 51 Methodology The techniques, procedures, and means

through which work gets accomplished (i.e., phases, processes, templates) 52 Why a Project Management Methodology? Todays work: tighter budgets, less time, fewer resources. Higher customer and user expectations for quality demand on organized approach. Need a documented path and procedures to control and manage project risk and change. 53 What does the States Methodology do? provides standard methods and guidelines to ensure that projects are conducted in a

disciplined, well-managed, and consistent manner that promotes the delivery of quality products and results in projects that are completed on time and within budget. 54 How does the Methodology work? Establishes a clearer work definition. Develops a more accurate project schedule and cost determination. Defines expected work packages. Displays when work is in trouble. Creates a plan to ensure work is completed on time. Determines status of work budgets. 55 Additional Efforts Under Way
