Your Lean Project Portfolio Management™ Software
Lean Project Portfolio Management™
Build portfolios with the right people working on the most important projects at the best possible time.
You will be able to easily manage your project pipeline and stage gate processes from project initiation through to completion. You can assess whether a project realistically fits into your portfolio. When circumstances change, you can use scenario planning to see the impact of those changes not only for that specific project, but also how it impacts all of your employees, your financials and the project portfolio as a whole. You can then react quickly and make the best decisions for your company.

You get the tools you need for every stage of resource planning. You can easily match the most qualified employees with available capacity to the most important projects to maximize resource utilization.

You can also simulate capacity changes using scenario planning to find out what happens if you add or remove internal or external capacity.

Strategic Alignment and Project Prioritization
Ensure that the most important projects receive top priority and are aligned to the corporate strategy.
With a simple drag and drop, you can match each project with the corresponding goal for a strategically balanced portfolio. You can also prioritize your projects directly in Meisterplan. You can simply rank each project and drag them into the desired order, or you can use the scoring feature to score each project and then sort by those scores. Resources are first assigned to the projects with the highest rank, so your key employees work on the top priority projects ensuring their success.

Use the Project Score feature to prioritize and sort the project list

You can include a chargeable rate for each role or resource so that you know the estimated resource costs for each project. Using scenario planning, you can quickly simulate and observe how financial resources are impacted by changes to projects.

Your IT team uses one tool for agile PM, another team prefers another tool for traditional PPM. You need a tool that works with both. No problem. It doesn’t matter what mix of project management methods or tools your company uses. With a Lean PPM tool like Meisterplan, you don’t even need to integrate technically with other tools unless you choose to. You only need a bare minimum of information from your teams for Lean PPM to work.
Let your teams work with the tools they already know and love.
Receive only the essential data from your teams
Add data directly in Meisterplan or sync with existing tools
