CCC Technology Center Project Management Office Update

May 26, 2020

budget planningIt's that time of year again. The 2020-21 fiscal year, which begins July 1, is rapidly approaching, and the California Community Colleges project teams are wrapping up 2019-20 project work and beginning to organize for 2020-21. Here is a roundup of current activities:

  • 2020-21 Grant Work Plans have been drafted. Scheduling is in progress for CCC Chancellor’s Office reviews, which are expected to happen in the June-July timeframe.

  • Weekly meetings with the CCCCO Technical Assistance Program lead and the Tech Center have resumed in order to better coordinate between teams as we plan for the new Fiscal Year.

  • Product Managers are busy standing up 2020-21 initiation artifacts, including project charters, prioritized business requirements and roles and responsibilities documents.

  • Project Managers are standing up 2020-21 Project Management Office wiki pages and assisting product teams with initiation artifacts as needed.

  • Product Managers are also beginning to document Epic stories in Jira that will be used to support a 2020-21 Combined Roadmap.

  • Epics and the proposed roadmap will be used as the basis for development estimation of work against team capacity. This is how we will determine how much work can be scoped for 2020-21.

  • We will be targeting fiscal year 2020-21 Q1 Quarterly Milestone planning around the third week of June.

We'd like to recognize the teams for all the hard work they've put into meeting 2019-20 goals, as well as getting in front of our 2020-21 planning efforts. July 1 will be here in no time and we want to do our best to make sure 2020-21 goals are clear.

Thanks to all!
