The M3 Framework is a six-phased approach that includes objectives, key activities, and outcomes for each phase. Within each phase, there are associated activities grouped across four workstreams: Program Management, Workforce, Organization and Stakeholders, Technology, and Process and Service Delivery. This framework aligns with the Investment Planning Process and CFO Act agencies may be required to conduct mandatory formal reviews.
To assist with the implementation of the M3 Framework, the M3 Playbook was developed. This playbook is not prescriptive, but provides guidance, tools, and templates based on best practices to help CFO Act agency customers and providers improve the likelihood of successful outcomes of their modernization and migration projects.
