Project Management Portal - A concept that is related to a repository is the idea of a portal.
The document repository is basically a place to store and retrieve documents. A portal, on the other hand, implies a central meeting place for people who have a common interest.
In this case, the common interest is project management. In fact, the portal could be established at a higher level as a place to find information on all company processes.
Project management could just be one of many processes that are a part of the portal.
However, the emphasis here is on a specific project management portal. In today's technical environment, the portal for a company would exist on the company Intranet.
The portal would be an Intranet website that would contain everything that is related to project management.
For instance, it would have all of the project management processes, procedures, templates, policies, etc. So far, this sounds a lot like the document repository.
The difference is that the project management portal also contains other non-document features that are of interest to people. For instance, the portal could have the following capabilities.
• Discussion forum. This would allow people to post questions that others could answer. Forums are a way to leverage the experience and knowledge of the rest of the organization.
• Tools. The portal could have links to project management tools, as well as installation and licensing instructions.
• Intranet links. The portal could have links to other Intranet sites of interest within the company. These could be links to client departments or links to other project-specific websites.
• Internet links. The portal could have links to other resource and reference sites on the Internet. Project managers could go to these other websites for more information of value to their project.
• Documents. Of course, people also have access to all of the documents. The documents can be stored in a document repository and the repository would be linked into the Intranet portal.
• E-learning. You could have project management e-learning classes tied to the portal that people can take at their own pace.
• Webinars. You can have the tools and links to offer webinar sessions through the portal.
Notice that the document repository and the portal are not mutually exclusive. You can have both. The repository is the mechanism that you use to store and retrieve documents.
The portal is an entire project management environment where people can find the information they need and can collaborate with others who have similar interests. The portal uses a repository to store the documents.
The PMO would be the logical organization to establish and maintain the project management portal. This would also give the PMO the ability to provide a one-stop area for everything having to do with project management.
