The Mission of the Portfolio Management Office
The PMO answers the Information Technology Services Department’s need for strategic management for large-scale technology implementation.
Through the PMO, ITS will centralize project management, solidify consistent standards and values in project implementation, and streamline knowledge resources. We will utilize proven methodologies such as Lean and ITIL to align projects with ITS Leadership goals, providing LSU IT with structured and standardized methodologies, mentorship, and training in project management best practices. By centralizing high-level project implementation with these systems, we can consistently provide standard IT project management best practices, a management system for ongoing projects, a gateway for new projects, and a primary contributor of accurate resource, risk, and issue forecasting.
Our trajectory reflects ITS’ mission to provide cutting edge technology infrastructure and services that advance learning and instruction, enabling research, enriching the LSU IT experience, and effectively managing institutional information.
