Articles about Project Portfolio Management and Resource Management
Fear of better options (FOBO) is common when managing a portfolio, but how can you make project portfolio management decisions without big regrets? This article gives tips on how to make even the most difficult portfolio management decisions.
Here at Meisterplan, agile software development meets traditional project management. This doesn't have to cause major conflicts. Our product manager Stefan Schneider explains how we handle waterfall and agile project management methods being used simultaneously at Meisterplan.
Introducing Scrum meant introducing a culture change. Moving away from waterfall planning with big concepts to small iterations. But we can't ignore the big concepts and milestones, especially not from the management perspective. Product management falls right in the middle of this gap. On one hand, there are the benefits of agile, and on the other hand, the importance of reliable planning. How do we bring this together? Our product manager, Stefan Schneider, tells his thoughts on the topic.
Meisterplan has a new look, the new user interface (UI) is beautiful! Yay! But to be honest, getting there was quite a challenge. Our UXdesigner Simone Liegl tells how Customer Journey Mapping and User Experience led to the new Meisterplan UI.

As soon as there is more than one project to be worked on, everything starts falling to pieces. Wouldn't it be awesome, if our plans actually worked? To make this happen, we need a portfolio management method that is easy to understand, learn, and maintain. We want to work together to make this a reality.
