Project Management Office Handbook - Executive Summary
Information on InternetNZ project management processes and methodology.
An InternetNZ project is: "a temporary undertaking to create a unique product or service with a defined start and end point and specific objectives which when achieved signify completion".
Any InternetNZ project must deliver outcomes that support the Strategic Plan.
To be run as a major project the planned expenditure must be greater than $5,000 and/or more than 25 tasks. For smaller projects there is no requirement to set up a major project, however this methodology may be used.
Projects are classified into five types:
- Discussion/Initiative Papers
- Internally Focused Projects
- Externally Focused projects
- Externally funded Projects where InternetNZ is Fund Manager
Externally Focused or Funded Projects require full project reporting whereas Sponsorship only requires a business case. Simple projects such as discussion papers and some internally focussed projects require only executive summaries of project documentation such as the initiation and evaluation documents.
