Each employee was required to attend a full-day project management seminar. New policies are establishing consistent, efficient procedures for project managers and teams to effectively plan, execute, and monitor their respective projects. As CMAP transitions to a "matrix" organizational structure, project managers are expected to assume a greater level of authority and accountability over agency work, while simultaneously operating and communicating within their functional departments.
Using a standardized template, Project Managers develop a project plan including scope, work breakdown structure, list of deliverables and associated dates, timeline, and means of team communication for each project. These plans are reviewed by the appropriate Deputy Executive Director(s) and their responsible Project Administrators. CMAP staff is in the process of evaluating options for project management software that Project Managers will be required to use for planning and executing their projects. Also, each CMAP staff member submits a short report every month to help monitor project progress.
