Example board paper on project management (after editing)


Purpose

To seek the Board's endorsement of a plan to strengthen project management in the organisation.

Recommendation

It is recommended the Board approve the following course of action:

  • distribution of simple project management templates and checklists for all business units
  • a one-day project management course for project staff
  • development of a simple project reporting system.

Issues

A consistent approach to project management across the organisation would assist project definition, approval processes, resource allocation, meeting deadlines and reporting.

The cost of the proposed course of action will be met from the central human resources budget.

Background

The Board previously recognised a need to provide business units with knowledge and tools to improve project planning and adopt a more structured approach to managing projects.

Business areas have not previously embraced efforts to introduce project management processes. This was due to inconsistent project management advice, and the cost of training and materials.
