Brdr. Hartmann creates profound project overview with Project Online
Brdr. Hartmann creates a pround overview of the project portfolio with Project Online.
With Project Online, Brdr. Hartmann has got a powerful tool not only to support the operation of their IT project portfolio, but also for anchoring their project methodology for IT projects.
Need for management reporting and better document sharing in projects
With a simple SharePoint list of IT projects and sharing documents, Brdr had. Hartmann already an important assistant in the portfolio work, but the need to report on status and progress in the portfolio and support a new stage/gate project model could not be adequately covered.
Overview of the project portfolio and efficient project management
Therefore, Brdr. Hartmann wanted a dedicated Project Management solution. With the implementation of Project Online, Brdr. Hartmann has gotten a platform that gives project managers a quick and better overview of their IT project portfolio.
Project managers can create their projects in Project Online and then provide a handful of strong project management tools, such as an MS Project project plan, risk analysis, status reporting, checklists and a project site for project documentation management and templates of duty documents in relation to the project method.
Project ideas and upcoming projects without a specific start date are gathered under the roadmap category and can then move smoothly into the portfolio of running projects in the stage/gate model.
An "enabler" for prioritization and strategic decisions
What the project manager taps into his own project, the portfolio manager can use to create an overview of all projects by producing reports that show progress in relation to the stage/gate model, ownership of projects in the organization or project status. This gives the project organization a far better starting point for making informed decisions to prioritize between projects and to report back to customers in the business.
A great result
"Collaboration with ProActive has been great and we are amazed about how we could get started and get some visible results so quickly," says Kristina Abel, Head of IT Project Management.
