As Tim Runcie’s recent excellent article on the topic pointing out, Agile methodology helps to create processes, procedures, and ultimately results. Infused with a time-phased, metrics-driven engine that delivers visibility to assignments, deliverables, work and cost estimates, and the ability to do enterprise wide resource capacity and forecasting/strategic planning, there is no question that Agile is a game changer to large and small organizations alike.
In the last five years, Microsoft has invested significantly in not just trying to add features, but to create a well-balanced and integrated technology tool solution that is addressing the need for speed and value realization of the modern workforce.
Anyone from an individual project manager to the enterprise project management office can use Project PPM and the Microsoft blend of Agile tools, and we are excited to be presenting a webinar series this month with the intent of continuing to educate and empower our Project Management community in how to maximize Agile and Microsoft PPM technologies to create better productivity and results.
The series is designed to help you line out how, not only to use or leverage Agile, but also how to utilize the widening landscape of Microsoft Project technologies designed to give the end-user a much easier and better implementation of Agile.
Remember that Microsoft is working on their new modern version of MS Project, one that is engineered from the ground up to be easier for users to learn, use, and implement. Read “Agile & Project PPM: The Better Together Story.”
