This document is intended to help program management offices (PMOs) responsible for initiating, planning, executing, and closing challenges within their organizations. It provides PMOs and their teams with an overview of challenges, a framework of the various phases of a challenge, and key questions/guidance PMOs should consider to ensure success.

Questions are intentionally short to ensure they are quickly comprehended, actionable, respectful of a PMO’s rapid operations tempo, and modular for easy navigation. The checklists are designed primarily to support idea generation challenges, but they are also applicable to a broad range of contest types.
