Current State Analysis

  • From mid-June to mid-July 2014, the Portfolio Management Group (PMG) began a series of interviews to assess existing perceptions regarding Project Management (PM) processes, tools, and techniques of PMG clients and partners throughout IST.
  • The interviews were performed by a neutral third party on behalf of PMG to;
    1. Solicit unfiltered, open and honest feedback.
    2. Ensure unbiased collection and interpretation of results.
  • The comments and responses were compiled into a catalogue of over 800 comments, observations, and suggestions. To better focus on building and improving PM processes, pain-points were categorized into the following theme areas:
    1. Methodology & Process
    2. Communication
    3. Governance & Accountability
    4. Resource Commitment & Support
    5. Culture

Workshop Goals

  • The Project Managment Office (PMO) provides a service to IST. The PMO will work collaboratively with IST and IST clients to ensure the service is value-added by combining IST’s knowledge and expertise with best practices, enabling an improved our project and program management environment.
  • Ultimately improve project/program execution, results and outcomes.
  • While we have documented pain-points and categorized them in theme groups, we would like to ask for YOUR help with the following:
    • Ensuring our summary is complete and accurate
    • Prioritizing pain-points
    • Identifying root causes for various pain-points
    • Developing a plan to address root causes
  • By addressing root-causes important to all of us, we hope to improve project team performance across IST and increase the likelihood of success for IST projects.
