USF Health Executive Project Management Office

Project Management Office

The USF Health Executive Project Management Office (Executive PMO) provides thoughtful and results-driven project management services at the executive level to support USF Health’s continued development and respond to the changing needs of our community. The Executive PMO is an integral part of the USF Health Administration team whose mission is to drive a culture of operational excellence through collaborations and implementation of quality services and systems in support of the USF Health community.

  • The Executive PMO embraces agile influenced values to better serve USF Health stakeholders.

    1. Acknowledging and supporting individuals and interactions over processes and tools
    2. Working processes and utilizing tools over comprehensive documentation
    3. Fostering collaboration over negotiation
    4. Willingness to innovate and respond to change over following a plan

    The Executive PMO is committed to continuous and iterative improvements by capitalizing on lessons learned and knowledge repositories to serve USF Health stakeholders more effectively.

  • The Executive PMO makes use of best practice standards defined by the Project Management Institute, including the following project phases:

    1. Discovery: project submission and review
    2. Initiating: project definition and analysis
    3. Planning: project plan development
    4. Executing: project implementation
    5. Monitoring: project tracking and reporting
    6. Closing: project conclusion

    The Executive PMO utilizes a hybrid of best practice project management methodologies to guide projects from discovery through closing. Methodologies will vary depending on the type of project, utilizing aspects of Traditional Project Management, Lean, Kanban, Six Sigma, Critical Path Method, Waterfall, Rapid Process Improvement, Human Performance Technology, Agile and Scrum.

  • The Executive PMO utilizes the following service standards to guide how we work with project stakeholders:
