Project Framework

Project Lifecycle - UoM framework

The Project Framework presented here provides a useful framework for managing a project – especially in the context of business change projects at the university. The framework follows a standard project management lifecycle which helps develop the case for the project, guides the implementation and provides tools and templates to enable management of risks and planning of communications and engagement. The framework is summarised in the guide here:

Project Management Guide

The framework is not specific to one governance structure but does depend on a project having effective sponsorship and governance routes. Each stage should be signed off at the appropriate level to confirm that the project is on track to deliver the benefits within the scope and timescales agreed.

This framework has been developed by the Programme Management Office. If you have any questions then please contact UoM-pmo@manchester.ac.uk. If your project relates to the implementation of an IT initiative then you may want to contact the IT Programme Management Office at ITS-pmo@manchester.ac.uk
