project cycleThe disciplined and systematic management of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) and IT/IRM programs and projects is critical to the success of OIMT’s Strategic Plan for the transformation of the State of Hawaii. To ensure that the initiatives undertaken by the State deliver the expected results, OIMT is instituting a rigorous approach to program and project management.

The variety of investments and initiatives that OIMT manages has been organized into a set of overarching programs, each of which comprise a number of individual projects. As defined by the Project Management Institute, a project is “a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result,” and a program is “A group of related projects, subprograms, and program activities that are managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits not available from managing them individually.”

Each program in the OIMT portfolio has a Program Manager assigned to oversee its operations and ensure its long-term success. Similarly, each project has a Project Manager, who is responsible for initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing their respective project. Oversight of the programs and projects is the responsibility of the CIO and the CIO Council. The status of each project with respect to cost, schedule, scope, performance, and risk is reported using automated dashboards.

The Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO) will assist program and project managers and their teams by providing leadership, expertise, experience, and training required for initiating, planning, and guiding initiatives to deliver results on time and within budget while controlling the scope and risk of the projects. Maintaining alignment to the strategic goals and mission of the State of Hawai`i is critical to successful program and project management, whether projects are managed for the benefit of a department or for statewide critical functions that benefit the entire enterprise and surrounding community.
