Varying components of the Project Management Methodology (PMM) has been used by the State of Michigan based on the applicable project. The Project Management Methodology is available for large and/or complex projects; the PMM Express was developed for smaller, less complex projects.
Project Management Methodology (PMM)
The State of Michigan's Project Management Methodology (see Related Documents, below) was adopted as a State standard in May 2000 and revised in May 2001 and December 2004 to reflect the experiences and lessons learned in using prior releases. This methodology is available for use by all state agencies. The Project Management Methodology consists of three components; the full PMM, the summarized Desk Reference, and the Project Management Templates. The PMM was developed by an advisory group composed of multiple state agency staff based on agency requirements. The PMM is revised periodically to reflect new processes in use in Michigan government.
Project Management Methodology (PMM) Express was developed as a guide to assist in the management of smaller, less complex projects within the Department of Information Technology. PMM Express is a customized version of the State of Michigan Project Management Methodology (PMM) and schedule templates (in both Niku Workbench and MS Project).
The PMM Express was streamlined to handle the effort/complexity level of 30 to 90 day projects. The applicable PMM Express templates include:
A standardized project schedule template is incorporated into PMM Express in both Niku Workbench and MS Project formats. The project schedule template contains the following major phases:
Initiation (charter development)
Planning (project plan development)
Execution (executing the project plan, maintaining the project schedule, managing project scope changes, and managing project issues)
Control (weekly status report preparation and status meetings)
Closeout (validating customer expectations, documenting best practices and lessons learned, and official project sign-off)
