Project Management Methodology

About our project management methodology

The objectives

The objective of this project management methodology is that all in-scope projects at the University of Tasmania are managed in accordance with an appropriate and consistent approach throughout the duration of the project, ensuring sponsors’ expectations are met through a successful delivery against time, cost and quality parameters.

The University's project management methodology is based on PRINCE2. The templates and resources incorporated into our methodology have been practiced, refined and enhanced to meet the specific needs of the University.

Quality management framework

The University's quality management framework links strategic direction setting, planning and quality at the whole-of-institution level and is aligned with the budgeting and risk management systems. Two essential dimensions are planning for quality and enhancing quality. The framework, underpinned by the (Objectives) > Approach > Deployment > Results > Improvement, (O)ADRI approach, deploys a range of mechanisms to achieve continuous improvement. Project management at the University will incorporate the requirements of the quality management framework.
