Project Management Methodology (PMM)

The State of Michigan's Project Management Methodology (see Related Documents, below) was adopted as a State standard in May 2000 and revised in May 2001, December 2004 and May 2014 to reflect the experiences and lessons learned in using prior releases. This methodology is available for use by all state agencies. The Project Management Methodology consists of three components; the full PMM, the summarized Desk Reference, and the Project Management Templates. The PMM was developed by an advisory group composed of multiple state agency staff based on agency requirements.  The PMM is revised periodically to reflect new processes in use in Michigan government.
