IT Projects 101


"Project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value."

Project Process

What happens to my request after I submit it?
  1. Once you submit your project request it will be reviewed for accuracy and any for additional information that may be required.

  2. After information has been gathered, a business case will be developed and your request will then go through a scoring process to ensure it is in line with our business objectives. This scoring model assists us in prioritizing approved projects in relation to other projects that are currently being worked on and/or have already been requested.

  3. Once your project request has been scored, it will be presented to the IT Governance Committee for further evaluation and prioritization.
     
  4. If the IT Governance Committee accepts the project, it will be recommended to the Executive Committee for final approval.
     
  5. If approved by the Executive Committee, your project will be given a timeline and resources will be allocated.

The estimated completion time for this entire process is 3-4 weeks.
