Digital projects are technology-related projects that deliver outputs or services that cannot be successful without technology enablement and/or Digital Services involvement, including hardware, software and infrastructure. Not all projects are digital projects or technology related.
Digital projects are categorised under two broad areas:
All digital projects are subject to the ECU Project Management Policy, Project Management Framework, Digital Project Management Guidelines and the IT Change Management process.
The ECU Project Management Policy outlines the essential elements in the management of all ECU projects.
The Digital Project Management Framework comprises a tailored project lifecycle for project management practitioners to manage technology-related projects at ECU. It is depicted as a simple overview of key processes, deliverables, governance and stage gates by progressive project phase and stage. Project sizing guidelines inform the recommended level of project sponsor and project board members, confirmed in the business case endorsed by the Information Technology Governance Committee (ITGC).
The intent of the ECU Digital Project Management Guidelines is to provide supporting information on the application of Project Management for technology related projects across the University. The guidelines outline how the project management, its framework, related processes and controls should be applied to deliver a project through its stages to achieve a successful outcome and contribute to the University’s strategic objectives.
IT Change Management aims to reduce disruption to the existing environment before, during and after the introduction of new service, or changes to an existing service. The Production Acceptance Criteria provides a list of considerations that must be addressed prior to submitting a request for a major change.
