PPM and Resource Management Software in One Lean Tool
Your employees are your most important resource. The success of your projects depends in large part on your employees. You need the right amount of people to get the job done. They also have to be qualified with the skills you need to accomplish multiple types of projects. And they must have available capacity. This is complicated enough when managing a single project, but when you are trying to accomplish resource management for an entire portfolio of projects, it can be overwhelming.
That’s where Meisterplan comes in. We know that project portfolio management simply doesn’t work without resource management.
