Every day, medium-sized and large enterprises are managing hundreds, even thousands, of projects in parallel. With a limited amount of human resources, tight schedules and finances, project managers have to hold their ground.
A powerful solution for complex multi-project and program management should provide options for transparent control. To this end, companies often use multi-project overviews in the form of milestone plans. The solution should also be easy to use across company boundaries.
Microsoft PPM and Planisware PPM are both proven and powerful tools with which this type of solution can be realized. TPG ProjectLink – an addin product for Microsoft PPM – enables collaboration across multiple projects and in programs. It ensures high performance and optimal transparency for project managers and steering committees regarding schedules, work and costs across projects.
