ICT Project and Program Methodologies
Smart Classrooms projects follow the department’s ICT Project and Program Methodologies, which are based on standards published by the Queensland Government.
The Queensland Government Project Management Methodology is based on the UK Office of Government Commerce PRINCE2 project management method. PRINCE2 is recognised best practice for project management. The Queensland Government Program Management Methodology is based on the Office of Government Commerce Managing Successful Programs.
These methodologies offer a consistent approach for delivering ICT solutions that are on time and within budget and for ensuring departmental ICT programs deliver desired outcomes and benefits.
Employees of the Department of Education, Training and Employment can access the methodologies from the Methods and Standards menu on the OnePortal intranet.
Key documents in the department's ICT Project and Program Methodologies are:
