The Program Services Office Toolkit
The PSO Toolkit is designed to equip project teams with the tools necessary to successfully deliver projects, ensuring a standard approach is applied. The templates included below are organized by project phase. These templates can be tailored to a project's specific needs. For questions regarding the templates, please contact email@example.com.
Identify the business case, scope, timeline and deliverables.
During the first phase of the project lifecycle, the project's justification, objectives, scope and deliverables are defined with enough clarity for the Executive Steering Committee and Project Sponsor(s) to determine whether to approve the project.
Plan for the various phases of the project.
The goal of the Planning phase is to produce documentation that will guide the project team in completing the analysis, development, testing, and deployment of the product. During this phase, the Change Management team will also begin assessing end user impact and an approach for communication, engagement and training.
Understand the expectations and requirements of the application and design.
This phase in the project lifecycle defines specific functionality to be delivered by the system, system interactions, and detailed interface designs.
Build the application according to requirements and specifications.
This purpose of the development phase is to translate the requirements into a working application which addressed all documented specifications.
