Based on the City’s requirements, an integrated process was designed between Project Portfolio Management (PPM) framework and Project Gating Framework. PPM would introduce the methodology for project submission, classification, screening and prioritization. Once approved and prioritized, projects were ‘registered’ and specific activation and gating processes would be initiated. This customized combined framework would address the key requirements of project selection and governance.
Given the magnitude of change envisioned, the approach was to select two diverse partner organizations (Information Technology and Land Use) as the pilot areas. By addressing very different needs of these two organizations, it was expected that with minor modification, the model/framework would be able to address needs of the Enterprise.
