Work on the Right Projects at the Right Time with the Right People

Project management offices (PMO) play an increasingly important role, not just coordinating and managing projects, but facilitating the transparency of information that the organization needs to make the best decisions. A PMO takes the challenge of a growing number of projects with competing priorities and finite resources and brings the insight needed to pursue the most important initiatives, optimally allocate resources, and ultimately accelerate the organization’s growth and success. It’s not about implementing as many projects as possible. It’s about executing the projects and portfolios that deliver value to the company.

Make Your PMO Ready to Adapt to Any Situation

Starting a PMO can drastically improve your company’s ability to anticipate change, adapt your plans and accelerate execution to achieve strategic goals. A successful PMO can help you:

  • See the whole picture of what you are investing in today and what you plan for the future
  • Ensure you are ready with plan alternatives to conquer whatever happens
  • Work on the right things and increase project quality and efficiency while staying within budget
  • Get a clear view of your employees’ utilization and real capacity and ensure they are working on what really matters
  • Vastly reduce the number of failed projects by always focusing on the top priorities
  • Deliver more business results aligned with corporate strategy

How to Set up Your PMO – All You Need in One Place

Setting up a project management office (PMO) is essentially the same as setting up a project portfolio management (PPM) process. It doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, we recommend starting lean, which is why we’re giving you everything you need to get your PMO up and running today with an easy and quick to implement framework called Lean PPM™ and a tool built for PMO work. Your Lean PPM™ process should help you answer two simple questions:

  • Which projects should we be doing, when?
  • Who will be working on them?

What Matthias Loves About Meisterplan

Before Meisterplan was introduced, our resource management was a game of Excel bingo: time-consuming, cumbersome, and error-prone.

What Christopher Loves About Meisterplan

When you don’t have a resource management tool you end up putting work on people without knowing how loaded they are. That leads to health problems, such as stress. It leads to people working ridiculously long hours. The retention of your staff goes down. With Meisterplan, we can protect our people.

I give Meisterplan an A+ for the experience of modifying the project timeline and resourcing. Consider this model if you’ve struggled to forecast resource capacity using spreadsheets or large commercial tools.

What Darrin Loves About Meisterplan

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.

What Bredon Loves About Meisterplan

Meisterplan filled a significant gap for us in understanding how we are utilizing our capacity. We now have a much better idea when we need to either say no to new projects or adjust timelines and team members assigned to projects. No other tool gave us this high-level view. It brought our stress level down.
