Leading Companies Trust Meisterplan
Lean PPM™ and Resource Management Software Combined
As your most important resource, your employees determine the success of your projects. You need the right amount of people with the right skills to get the work done. Plus, they have to be available to work on the projects. This is hard 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, so that is why we have developed one solution that is both project portfolio management and resource management software in one lean tool.
