Any organization that intends to support a formal project methodology should realize that it would not simply end there. Much more is needed than simply using a project methodology for your project delivery process. You need to support your methodology after you have implemented it. Key factors that your organization should consider before commencing with the implementation include:

There must be an executive commitment to the continual support.

The methodology must be accepted in totality by the organization and all required input must be received.

All project managers and support staff must be trained in the proper use and functionality of the methodology, its tools, and its processes.

All projects must be prioritized and identified in the organization.

Prioritized projects should be funneled through the project office, which, in turn, schedules the projects in accordance with the resources available.

Processes must be updated to reflect the presence of the new methodology (i.e., the financial reporting and executive reporting systems must be updated).
