Deploy your project management method

Make your project methodology an everyday tool by integrating it with project management software

Project models adapted to Prince 2, PMI, Cycle V, Agile methods, etc.

Project design and management

Tools for applying project methods

Project management methods bring performance provided they are applied and effectively implemented on a daily basis. Whether your project approach is based on :

  • market standards such as PMI, Prince2, Scrum agile method
  • waterfall", "agile", "Cycle V", "stage gate", or normative models as in the construction industry
  • an "in-house" approach that brings together the specific features of your business and the best practices of the reference frameworks

It will be a winning strategy if it is shared and appropriated by all stakeholders. To facilitate effective implementation, Project Monitor enables your project managers to put the system into practice.

A project methodology transposed through model, process and control

The implementation of project methods is based on four key software functions:

  • project templates that describe typical project structures with schedule, checklists, typical workload plan, typical financing plan, etc.
  • Workflows that model the key processes of your project methods. Go / No Go, milestone validation, milestone validation, project review, etc.
  • rights management, which places responsibility on the various players in your project method
  • Dashboards to monitor the correct application of the project methodology

For example, the Prince2 project method provides the following:

  • documentation automatically generated from project templates and operational inputs
  • a validation process for key stages
  • organization of the responsibilities of the various stakeholders
  • reporting on the correct application of the method and its various requirements

Whatever the scale, we always apply the same principles (Prince2 repository), and the project structure is always the same. This gives consistency to the data.

Capitalize on your project methods

A methodology must be part of a continuous improvement process. Adjustments to methods are disseminated automatically via templates. Workload abacuses are fed by time tracking to ensure the reliability of workload forecasts. Reports highlight tricky areas of application and the right elements. With Project Monitor, it's easy to find out how many projects actually apply the project review phase.

Thanks to collaborative functions, users can exchange views with the methods manager and propose improvements or suggestions.

Shared project method, specificity translated

Project Monitor allows a common framework for project management to be defined, and the initial model to be extended on a project-by-project basis to meet specific needs. Thanks to this flexibility, the portfolio manager can maintain standardized tracking, and project teams can carry out more detailed tracking.

For PMOs in charge of monitoring methods, dashboards enable them to focus on key milestones, thus improving project management, while the deliverable-based approach enables validation of key milestones by operational staff, etc. Workflows can be used to industrialize methodology processes.
