About the community

In 2018, the Information Technology Leadership Council (ITLC), led by Senior Vice President and CIO Michele Norin, established a Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) sub-committee to advance the understanding, and promotion of, project and portfolio management best practices. The committee surveyed IT professionals throughout the university to gain a better understanding of the Rutgers IT project management landscape, and to begin to build a community of practice.

The primary goal of the community is to provide an inclusive and collaborative environment for project management practitioners to share best practices, methodologies and expertise. This group will seek collective advancement to achieve greater success in IT projects and balancing of IT project portfolios.
