21 ConsA major constraint was the lack of definition in regards to the roles and responsibilities of the functional team members.There was minimal information on what the roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders were in the ECM project.Some stakeholders provided a project definition in regards to the phase that specific functional department was involved in.
22 OpinionA more clearly definition of the roles and responsibilities for all functional team members and stakeholders should have been implemented somewhere in the Project Definition.Functional team members need to be assigned roles and responsibilities in order for the project to deliver the system concept.The ECM project is a major IT project that will impact a lot stakeholders, departments, users and clients.There are a lot of ongoing subprojects within the ECM project due to its significant amount of work, resources and tasks. Therefore, it is imperative that the roles and responsibilities be clearly defined.
23 ProsThe project organization has a clear methodology direction for the ECM Project.The PMO uses project management methodology through the complete project management lifecycle. Therefore, creating the ITESC and PRB.The PRB receives all project requests from ITS functional departments for reviewing and prioritization.The PRB then presents the projects to the ITESC for approval according to its priority level.A PM is selected for the overall project management of the ITS project.This project organization establishes a well defined organize foundation for the ECM project.
