Controlling the Project Cost, in practice
To get the project finished under budget, we need to measure cost performance on each review date. Earned Value Management (EVM), is the ANSI 748 standard method to measure the project cost performance objectively. According to EVM standard, as of each status date, three measures are enough to analyze the project cost performance. Professional project managers can practice EVM effectively with PMPeople.
Practicing the PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition with PMPeople
PMPeople can be seen as the “conveyor belt” to move gears of professional project management in the Project Economy: As a project manager, I can follow most of the 12 principles just updating the project data in PMPeople. As a stakeholder, I can check many results on the 8 performance domains just getting the evidence of good/bad performance directly on PMPeople.
PMPeople to Control Agile Projects
Manage the agile part of a project: 1) keep professional project management in PMPeople: stakeholders engagement, risks, status reports, time sheets and expenses, etc. 2) decompose the project into work packages, meaning agile releases; 3) Connect work package #0 (the project itself) to Asana list for epics; 4) Connect each release to Asana list for user stories; 5) Managers do not need Asana: they use PMPeople to track epics and stories.
Work Packages in the center of Professional Project Management
Work packages are the work defined at the lowest level of the work breakdown structure for which cost and duration are estimated and managed. Work packages are in the center of professional project management.
Setting the PMO up in 1 week
Organizations in the project economy cannot wait 6 months to have a PMO up and running. Thanks to our tool PMPeople, PMO activation does not have to be a long expensive project anymore. All the technology can be set up in 1 week so that you can focus on the PMO function. In this short period, now is technically possible to have many people collaborating on project management, using different roles.
Controlling Projects Performance
Project managers use their soft skills to manage any project professionally, but they need also their hard skills, some of them highly automatable. PMPeople automates many techniques to control the project performance, such as decomposition, schedule control, earned value management, etc.
PM² Artefacts with PMPeople
The PM² Guide describes 33 document templates covering most cases in all kind of projects, not just UE’s ones. Many projects need to follow a strict methodology based on documented evidence. Even for those cases, PMPeople enables people to collaborate first, and document the project later, saving time and fostering project teams productivity.
Project Procurement in the Project Economy
The growing specialialization in the project economy makes unusual “one project team makes all”. More and more projects are connected via procurement: A certain buyer performing project #1 outsources work package #1 to seller #1 who performs project #2, part of which is outsourced again to another seller performing project #3, etc. Control all project procurement interdependencies with PMPeople.
PMPeople to organize Projects, Programs and Portfolios
Organizations in the project economy group projects into Business Units. PMPeople also implements the 3 management frameworks standardized by PMI® to help Project Managers, Program Managers and Portfolio Managers.
