Summary or Abstract : The Office of Technology Services (OTS) at Immaculata University is facing a significant challenge. A recent increase in enrollment, coupled with the launch of several critical technology initiatives, has our technology team operating at nearly max capacity. At present, university administrators have determined that adding additional technology staff is not feasible. Therefore, in order to meet the challenges associated with change, the OTS team must identify a way to improve its overall operational efficiency.As this Executive Position Paper (EPP) indicates, understanding project management has become a critical competency for today's educational technology professional (Brill, Bishop, Walker, 2006, p. 116). The OTS team at Immaculata is no exception. Simply stated, project management training is a must for any organization whose goal is to improve operational efficiency. Therefore, the goal of this EPP is to provide university leaders with evidence justifying the need for project management training, as well as a framework for designing, developing, and delivering that training.This EPP is divided into three chapters. Chapter one serves as a review of recent literature on the topic. This review provides the reader with evidence illustrating the need for, the impact of, and the benefits associated with project management training. The second chapter features a needs assessment. The data discovered during the assessment provides an answer to the central question "does the OTS team want and need project management training?"Chapter three outlines a framework for implementing project management training for the OTS team. The framework, based on a successful model utilized at the State University of New York in Albany, highlights several critical phases in the process including goal setting, learner analysis, curriculum assessment, delivery assessment, budget, and timeline. It also details the process by which a prototype project management training module was created. The prototype design process serves as an example of how project management training could feasibly be developed and delivered. Lastly, Chapter three outlines my recommendations for implementation, draws conclusions, and offers a strategy for delivering those recommendations to university leadership..
