  • Document the goals and objectives of each project in coordination with the project sponsor. Facilitate planning sessions to capture requirements and acceptance criteria for projects. Create plans to include iterative planning typical of rolling-wave planning.
  • Perform research on the latest trends in project management that will feed into established Standards for Project Management. Read books, watch webinars, and attend conferences (virtual as well as in-person) to stay current regarding the latest developments for Project Management Offices.
  • Provide assistance to others within the Enterprise to gain a better understanding of project management, whether serving as a mentor for another project manager or project coordinator or answering questions of individuals outside of the department.
  • Upon completion of phases or entire projects, capture lessons learned and incorporate them into a report that will be archived with the project documents in accordance with established Project Archiving Standards. Ensure any tasks that will be accomplished outside of a project scope have incident tickets created.
