Our team project is aimed at concluding if the Office of Information Technology (OIT) at Portland State University (PSU) has a project management framework. If OIT at PSU already has a project management framework in place, we will be looking at improving the existing framework in order to enhance performance related issues. In this regard, our team functioned as a group of consultants with the objective of implementing a project management office or center of excellence for OIT at PSU. We focused on the possibilities of standardizing aspects of the proposed model in order to minimize redundancy issues.

Initially, a questionnaire was used for the purpose of collecting vital information related to the existing project management methodologies in OIT at PSU. We distributed the questionnaire to each OIT project/department manager. Most of the questions are based on the hexagon of excellence, portfolio management, and portfolio strategies. Also, we conducted a personal interview with the two of the department directors for OIT at PSU in order to get more specific details as to their opinions on the existing processes or procedures. Next, we analyzed the compiled information and compared it to the project management conceptual framework. Finally, our results in this report indicate suggestions for improvement in managing project management in OIT at PSU.
