  • In its research to help organizations to develop and maintain quality products and services, the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) has found several dimensions that an organization can focus on to improve its business.

    Figure 1.1 illustrates the three critical dimensions that organizations typically focus on: people, procedures and methods, and tools and equipment.

    The cost of quality need to be justified with efficient project management and it is achievable with an integrated
    project management tool which facilitates PMO to define lifecycles and workflows matching the process
    areas of these methodologies.

  • Process areas from various methodologies and Project management are two sides of the same coin. An organization is gauged by how much it really look at quality of service delivery it offers and how are their requirements managed by their vendor.

    Methodologies like CMMi help organization define their process areas and how would they work towards those process areas in order to maintain the quality of delivery. Organizations spend huge amount in just understanding and getting certified for using such methodology. While Project management defines the end to end management of three important elements of any organization- cost, Scope and Time.

    The cost of quality need to be justified with efficient project management and it is achievable with an integrated project management tool which facilitates PMO to define lifecycles and workflows matching the process areas of these methodologies.

    Of the cream a solution comes out is PPM Studio with its integrated approach assists organizations to manage their projects within the set process governance guidelines. Its pre-configured project work flows supports process methodologies like CMMi, PMBOK, and PRINCE2.
