Project Management

Our EPMO project management methodology is based on the widely accepted Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Information gets clearer as projects progress, and this rolling wave or iterative progression along with adaptive/agile techniques form our framework. Every project is truly a unique endeavor, and project management is often knowing what to apply and when. It requires various talents and it's often the "soft skills" most needed. The definition of Project Management found in the PMBOK's 5th edition states "it's the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements." This is the job of the Project Manager (PM).

Benefits of project management include: leading stakeholders to consensus on desired outcomes, utilization of standards and process that let you anticipate results and meet statutory requirements, structure to identify and sequence activities, communicating concerns and status of progress, identifying impacts while transitioning business through change, control in monitoring the scope, cost, and schedule (triple constraint) and resources involved.

Project Manager Toolkit IconHaving a project management toolkit is a great start and our EPMO PM Toolkit provides the direction needed along with many of the tools, templates, and techniques to be successful. It's assembled from the experience of PMP Certified Project Managers supporting a range of statewide projects using industry best practices. We illustrate the sequence and steps to take and identify the necessary deliverables to develop along the way based on the project size, risk and complexity.
