Projects in the Cloud with PMPeople
Most professionals are always connected. Knowledge workers are used to collaborating on objects in the cloud: they alternate their laptop, tablet, or mobile phone, to work concurrently on the same version of the document, spreadsheet, presentation, article, web design, software code, prototype, etc. No need to download, install, send, merging changes, etc. All of them working together on the same version of the truth. In the project economy, it is also time to digitize management, knowledge and interactions between people working on projects, programs, and portfolios.
Is your PMO producing Reports or delivering Value?
Most PMOs are seen as internal cost centers adding bureaucracy to projects. PMPeople helps people collaborate on project management professionally, in the cloud, using different roles. PMOs can distribute many management activities, having more time for anticipating problems and delivering value. With PMPeople, the PMO can grow from being a cost center to lead the company in the Project Economy.

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.
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.
PMPeople to support NextGenerationEU
Spain has been granted 140,000 million euros from the Recovery Plan for Europe Next Generation EU. Does this imply we need to start managing 100,000 projects this year?

The approach should integrate project governance, project professionals and project management technology.
