  • The estimate at completion is automatically calculated and predicts the costs or effort as the project progresses
  • Recognize when you need to take action and allocate more resources to keep projects on track

The biggest value that Meisterplan gives us is the ability to communicate across the enterprise what’s being worked on. It adds transparency as to why things are stacked ranked, and it holds people accountable to decisions that were made. This has resulted in more projects being completed on time, and more projects being aligned to a strategy, because they were accurately prioritized.

Without Meisterplan, portfolio decisions during crises like this are not well-informed and have unpredictable outcomes.

I give Meisterplan an A+ for the experience of modifying the project timeline and resourcing. Consider this model if you’ve struggled to forecast resource capacity using spreadsheets or large commercial tools.

Very usable for enterprises with large number of projects to prioritize. It was designed to help PMOs and resource managers find the best fit in the project portfolio. It is easy to use and easy to implement. The user interface is really simple but offers useful functionalities for project and resource planning and prioritization.
