As more people have gained access to the Internet over the past decade, an ever-increasing number of education-based organizations are offering online courses. However, because the process of offering online classes means meeting unalterable delivery dates, these organizations are increasingly using project management to deliver their products. This article features the vice president of project management at K12, Inc. (Herndon, VA, USA) discussing the company's approach to managing its online classes for children in grades kindergarten to 12. In doing so, it describes the project management methodologies that K12 uses to manage its time-sensitive projects. It also identifies K12's process for selecting its online courses, a process that includes developing a 24-month product roadmap and practicing project portfolio management. It then explains the company's approach to managing its project managers and reporting and controlling project performance.
