Following feedback from Project Managers at Essex, we’ve simplified our Project Management Framework to make it less bureaucratic and more supportive.
The improved framework includes:
- Informal ‘project kick-off’ meetings to introduce you to the framework
- A simplified Governance approval framework and a PMF support guide
- Clearer and simpler templates
- A one stop shop to help you manage and deliver your projects successfully
- Updated project webpages
You can find all the new templates and support materials on our Projects website.
Although they’re designed to support major projects that are overseen by the Project Coordination Group (PCG), you can use all of our support materials for any type of project, at any level. Our Project Assessment Matrix will help you work out where your project should sit.
If you’ve already started work on a previous template, don’t worry! Just continue with what you’ve started. However, from February 2017 all new projects should use the new templates. Just give us a call if you are unsure, we’ll be as flexible as possible during the transition period.
We’ll be running sessions to show you how to use the new templates through our Project Managers’ Network (PMN) . If you’re not a member and would like to join, or if you have any questions or feedback, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
