Project Management Tools and Guides

Methodology

The Texas A&M IT Project Management Office (PMO) developed a standard Project Management Methodology, according to the TAC 216 requirements and University Rules and SAPs. A consistent project management methodology, developed, endorsed, and used by Texas A&M IT organizations will improve predictability, understanding and performance of our project initiatives.

The project management methodology is based on the Project Management Institute’s approved standards that are accepted and widely utilized by the project management community in both business and education.

This methodology provides a minimal framework to assist project managers, as well as staff functioning as project managers, in the planning and execution of projects. Additionally, the methodology provides a repeatable and documented process for use in communicating a roadmap for both project team members and management.

This material is provided as reference and starting point for other campus organizations wishing to adopt a simple set of project management practices.
