IT Project Management Office, Year in Review 2016

Establishing an IT Project Management Office

  • The project team identified project-management services needed by the IT community.
  • An IT Project Management Office (IT PMO) is being established. It will offer IT project consulting and services on a for-hire basis, along with PM training and tools. 
  • The team worked with central HR to develop and receive approval for a new “project coordinator” job classification.

IT PMO Website Launched

  • A new website was created at http://itpmo.uiowa.edu.
  • The site features PM documents and templates, outlines, explanations of services offered, and updates on projects with which the group is assisting.

Improved Visibility of IT Projects

Nearly 1,000 projects are being tracked through Team Dynamix to enhance visibility of IT projects and activities. 88% of IT staff are tracking time in hours devoted to IT projects, services and support
  • Time tracking gives a clear picture of how work hours are utilized and the campus-wide IT spend. The data helps IT leaders make decisions on prioritization and resources.
  • The team is now focused on getting remainder of IT staff and projects entered into Team Dynamix, and training more individuals to use it.
