ITD leverages customized project management tools and templates.

Project Management Templates

Project Oversight Templates

Some projects require project oversight. Templates specific to this process include:

Managing Projects

The Project Management Guidebook provides a common methodology for managing projects within state government. It is designed to supply enough detail to guide new project managers through the process while still being valuable to those experienced in the field.

Agile Project Management

The Agile Reference Manual provides examples and options for managing an agile project in state government, utilizing concepts presented in the Project Management Institute's Agile Practice Guide.

The Methodology Selection Tool (courtesy of the University of Notre Dame’s Project Management Office) is intended to help teams assess and discuss whether projects should be undertaken using predictive, iterative, agile, or blended approaches. Use it with the Agile Methodology Blends Matrix (also from the University of Notre Dame) to help guide project approach decisions.

Managing Risk

The Risk Management Guidebook provides a common methodology for managing project risk within state government. Utilizing one common framework improves the state's ability to complete project successfully.

Analyzing Requirements

The Requirements Analysis Guidebook assists decision-makers in eliciting, analyzing, specifying, prioritizing, verifying, and negotiating business functions that a product must deliver and support. The results are captured in a Requirements Analysis deliverable.
