Developed by the GTMI; the GTMF is a systematic approach to managing the entire business transformation lifecycle from the point when a business problem/need has been identified, to the analysis of that problem/need, through the delivery of the solution all the way to final client sign-off...always with the ultimate objective of improving government operational efficiency and value for money.
It is comprised of 2 stages (Opportunity Management and Project Management), 8 phases, activities, key artifacts, tools, gating, control points and governance.
The GTMF covers the following 6 "Transformation Management Knowledge Areas":
The GTMF has been tailored to deal with the unique needs of government, incorporating rigorous reporting, gating and governance, transparency of investment approvals, and Treasury Board Submissions.
It is fully compliant to the latest Treasury Board Policies and Directive on the Management of Investments and Projects (2018).
It is based on business analysis, project management and change management best practices as well as various Government of Canada opportunity and project management frameworks currently in place.
