PPM for Higher Education Institutions

Get the Transparency You Need to Make Strategic Decisions

Lean Project Portfolio Management™ for Higher Education Institutions

The World’s Most Effective Companies Rely on Meisterplan

Colleges and Universities Need Lean and Flexible PPM That Works for Everyone

As a higher education institution, you want to focus on providing the best educational experience to students. To do that, you need to execute projects, but this is not an easy task. Higher education institutions often have incredibly complex project portfolios and managing them is at best an extremely cumbersome task, and at worst, completely ineffective. You need to be able to objectively evaluate new project initiatives, properly prioritize projects, and ensure you have the resources for project execution. Colleges and universities are implementing and scaling Project Management Offices (PMOs) to accomplish this task, but a PMO is only as effective as its tools.

Meisterplan is a project portfolio and resource management tool designed to help higher education PMOs succeed. With an intuitive and easy to use dashboard, you can see a bird’s eye view of your portfolio including project costs, employee workloads, project dependencies and potential resource bottlenecks. This provides all the project data needed for making informed and strategic decisions. You can also use our scenario planner to compare different portfolios so you can be confident about your project portfolio moving forward. When priorities change, you can easily update your project portfolio and see the impact in real-time.

What Jay Loves About Meisterplan

There are a lot of things that go into a project plan besides the timing and resources. We need a lot of context and it shouldn't be a surprise when a project needs attention. Our projects need to tie back to our mission and what we want to achieve. With Meisterplan, we can make informed decisions and move the organization forward.

What Dan Loves About Meisterplan

One of our problems was being able to show everybody our portfolio plan. Now we see all our projects we would talk about, graphically depicted. You can see their durations and when you scroll down, you can see the team. Maybe these two projects are significant and they're taking two resources each for this period of time. We can now see how much room is in the capacity bucket that we have left to fill. From here we can look at our options. Using Meisterplan to do that helps us show our work and provide transparency.
