The decision management structure provides cross-team alignment to effectively address and escalate decisions, while project management processes and resources enable a strong project governance and also supports an inclusive model for program execution.
We are committed to understanding who our stakeholders are, providing you with clear and concise information, and hearing your voices throughout the project lifecycle. We will build into our plan targeted engagement points with each stakeholder group, including students, faculty, staff, and administrators with the aim of providing the Rutgers community with timely updates on project progress, what to expect in the future, and how they will be impacted. We also will manage concerns and gain commitment from stakeholders throughout each project phase.
