What is Project Governance?<br />Project Governance uses the basic principle of Governance and applies it into both the management of individual projects via Governance structures, and the management of projects at the business level. It defines accountabilities and responsibilities for strategic decision-making across the project.<br />It will:<br />Outline the relationships between all internal and external groups involved in the project <br />Describe the proper flow of information regarding the project to all stakeholders <br />Ensure the appropriate review of issues encountered within each project <br />Ensure that required approvals and direction for the project is obtained at each appropriate stage of the project.<br />

Intended Strategies <br />Agile project teams measure progress not according to how many requirements have been gathered, but by how much running functionality has been designed, programmed, and integrated (running tested features, or RTF )<br />Agile burn-up charts are very similar to traditional earned-value charts <br />The vertical tick-marks show 10 percent units of completed RTF from left to right (100 percent complete at the right). The triangle milestone markers show the amount of RTF the team targets to have completed and integrated at each IR (Internal releases) milestone.<br />Fig: Burn-Up Chart ( Running tested feature)<br />Fig: Target Progress Markers<br />
Collecting the Information<br />Gathering the Estimates<br />To capture the of whatfor tracking, we need three pieces of information:<br />What is the unit of accomplishment? often consists of use cases<br />About how many units do you expect to create?<br />Confidence level on the estimate<br />Gathering the Status<br />To tag the timeline, we need to give each iteration or planning window a milestone number such as an IR completed then followed by iteration completed.<br />After iterations, the teams send in their RTF numbers, which get rolled up into a summary spreadsheet at any level of granularity desired.<br />
The Status Report Packet<br />A good summary pageof the package put in front of the steering committee. That package also needs detail pages for the separate subprojects. <br />This detail page has three sections: <br /><ul><li>A status/targeted/deferred and risk snapshot for each section of work within the component.
A commentary, including surprises and lessons learned during the previous period.
Managing a portfolio of projects within the enterprise of a company.
Manage how to spend the money on different projects
Manage the volatility of successful and failed projects

Improve the practice and results of project management
Department or group that defines and maintains the standards of process, generally related to project management, within the organization.

Some More Facts…<br /><ul><li>Enterprise Resource Planning Initiatives
51 percent of survey respondents to the 2001 Robbins-Gioia Survey viewed their ERP implementation as unsuccessful
However, 56 percent of respondents indicated that their organization had a PMO in place and of those individuals only 36 percent felt the ERP implementation was unsuccessful</li></li></ul><li>A Program Management Office (PMO) can effectively help address these challenges…<br />PMO Challenges & Responsibilities<br />Examples of Challenges<br />Responsibilities of PMO<br /><ul><li>Project mission and tasks are poorly defined
