Establishing Governance - Project Management Best Practices


Set the tone for the project with clearly defined roles.

Governance is the structure that is put into place to make sure there is a clear understanding of who is responsible for what decisions. The project manager has the authority to make final decisions that affect the desired outcomes, requirements, scope, budget, schedule, and team members. While governance requires clearly defined roles and escalation paths the project structure may not always mimic the operational structure.
