Improved Resource Management with Meisterplan + Smartsheet

Take your project management to the next level with Meisterplan’s portfolio-level resource planning capabilities. Enhance Smartsheet with functions for strategic, interdepartmental resource management. Continue to use Smartsheet for project management and work collaboration. Then connect with Meisterplan to gain extra value with project intake & governance features, scoring & prioritization and scenario simulations for alternative personnel plans.

Visualize High-Level Plans Earlier to Know Which Projects Are Feasible

  • Work with rough time estimates in Meisterplan to understand when projects should start, long before breaking things down at the task level in Smartsheet
  • Avoid duplicating work while projects progress by syncing your Smartsheet allocation, milestone and financial data with Meisterplan to view everything at the portfolio level
  • Practice effective resource management to ensure your teams are not overloaded, and quickly identify future staffing needs by viewing long-range demands alongside active project needs

See the First Signs of Trouble and Make Fast, Confident Decisions

  • Use Meisterplan’s interactive views to immediately see the real impact of project changes to your overall portfolio capacity
  • Quickly simulate “what if?” scenarios to find the best course of action with the least impact
  • Determine whether the right work is getting done at the right time so you can continue to meet key targets and reduce project delays

Prioritize Projects Based on Your Strategy, Goals and Budgets

  • Collect initiatives and track project progress using our Kanban-style Board View
  • Translate strategy into scoring criteria to help prioritize your projects and initiatives
  • Keep track of individual project financials in Smartsheet and use Meisterplan to monitor if money is being spent as planned, or forecast anticipated spend, across your entire portfolio
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.

The flow of our projects is highly dynamic, and Meisterplans' Scenario Modeling has greatly enhanced our ability to manage the swings whether upward or downward.

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

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.
