DIY Project Management
Attention! This section is for small projects projects that don't require the Project Management Office to be involved. But that doesn't mean you are alone. The Project Management Office is here to offer support and advice on any project, no matter the size. For assistance, please contact the PMO at email@example.com.
Even small projects need to be coordinated and managed. For small or "Lite Projects," we have compiled a list of resources that a team can use.
WHAT IS A LITE PROJECT?
WHAT TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE?
The following tools are available to assist with the Lite Project process:
- The Lite Project Charter Template should be used to help set expectations and
ensure all team members of a common understanding of the project purpose,
expected deliverables, team member roles, communications necessary, and operational
support once the project has been completed.
A Project Tracker Template is available to capture action items, risks, decisions
and financials. It is an optional document intended to help the project
lead track and organize the details of the project if needed. You can also
sample Project Tracker.
The Implementation Task List should be used to assist in capturing the sequence
of events needed to move to production. It should contain who will be performing
which tasks and when, along with any dependencies. If the project requires
moving between multiple environments, the Implementation Task List should be used
to track the tasks needed for each environment to ensure consistency. The
Implementation Task List should be reviewed by all team members to ensure all steps necessary have been communicated before go-live. You may also download a
sample Implementation Task List.
