Make your project methodology an everyday tool by integrating it with project management software
Project management methods bring performance provided they are applied and effectively implemented on a daily basis. Whether your project approach is based on :
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.
The implementation of project methods is based on four key software functions:
For example, the Prince2 project method provides the following:
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.Mireille BUSSON - Head of IT Projects and Applications - Plaine Commune
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.
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.
