Process Governance is based on the concept that all methodologies employ a consistent set of practices that are executed concurrently during the entire life cycle of the project. It makes use of Templates (process model with framework) for project execution, using which an organization can develop and maintain an array of process models to support different project types.

The applications Default Tasks (Activity Matrix) support modeling of the standard software development methodologies like RUP®, PMBOK, and Agile and is consistent with the CMMI capability/maturity goals of the organization.

The following sequence of processes can be followed to implement processes in your organization using Process Governance under Administration:

  1. Process Definition/Upgrade: Define Templates, which encapsulate the process to be implemented in projects. It includes defining the Activity Matrix comprising of Industry standards and custom practices, phases, and standard activities in the life cycle of a project. Configure the template for easy execution and monitoring in projects. The processes after deployment can be continuously upgraded for improvement.

  2. Process Deployment: Process Team Members can comment and contribute before they approve the template, after which it can be deployed.

  3. Process Execution and Tailoring: After the Template is deployed, a project can implement the process for their project type by selecting the appropriate Template at the time of creating the project. The project manager can tailor the project based on the project requirement if the Template has provided a choice by defining the Tailoring Guidelines.

  4. Process Measurement and Collaboration: Processes can be evaluated by measuring the Project data in line with the process definition during the course of the project execution. Collaboration can happen in various contexts related to compliance in projects, processes, or project artifacts- formally through meetings, or informally through Forums.

  5. Process Improvement: On evaluating processes, they can be continuously improved based on Improvement Requests from project managers. The Action Plan defined for implementing the process changes can be tracked for effective process appraisal. Process Changes can be published to projects and projects can subscribe to these upgrades.
