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.

There is no other product that does what Meisterplan does in terms of portfolio management and resource management without unessential extra features. If there were another product that does what Meisterplan does, I would have found it, because I tried them all.

Meisterplan gives me an overview of our global IT project landscape. A step-by-step implementation enabled us to cope with the complexity of our project portfolio. When setting up our PMO, we oriented ourselves strongly towards Lean PPM.

Meisterplan provides us with what we need for excellent strategic portfolio and resource management: All essential information on one screen to make sound decisions, and for teams to see what they need to work on and when. It is powerful yet so easy to work with, whether we apply waterfall, agile, or hybrid.

We successfully run 400 projects and 20 programs in our portfolio with Meisterplan. Although many have tried, you can’t manage that many programs and resources in Excel templates. But you can with Meisterplan.

Before implementing Meisterplan, our resource management was a game of Excel bingo: timeconsuming, cumbersome, and error prone.
