PM Dashboards

Demonstrating the dynamic capabilities of the ConceptDraw software suite, PM Dashboards uses PRO in conjunction with PROJECT to create live dashboards that can display project data to team members.

PM Presentations

Another solution to highlight the power of ConceptDraw software when used in combination - take project status slides from PROJECT, performance diagrams and charts from PRO, and collected information from MINDMAP, then use PRO or MINDMAP to combine all these elements into a single presentation.

PM Response

By feeding project data into MINDMAP through the PM response solution, it is possible to analyze iteration planning, discuss project layout approaches, and solve project challenges.

How ConceptDraw Helps With Project Management

Project Management

We strive to create innovative value in project management using well-known methodologies. An important part of our business is to support and enhance project management methodologies, and extend their functionality by providing extra tool box solutions. We create practical value for your project through our PM Solutions, available in ConceptDraw Solution Park. Our solutions increase the general effectiveness of your work by supporting whichever methodology you use in your specific project.

Each project has its own individual challenges, due to the project’s environment. Using a proven project management methodology, supported by PM Solutions from ConceptDraw Solution Park, allows you to extend the effectiveness of that methodology. ConceptDraw Solution Park helps you quickly adapt to the uniqueness of any project situation.

ConceptDraw Solution Park improves your project management activity by providing you with Toolbox and Methodology Solutions. Toolbox Solutions enhance your daily project management activities regardless of your project methodology. Methodology Solutions help with your specific project management practices.

Typical Tasks for Any Project Manager

Typical Tasks

There are a set of universal activities that every project manager faces. These activities are the core to any project, and many of them are common, regardless of the project phase. Presentations are important in keeping everyone informed of project progress and changes that occur during a project’s life cycle. Other critical and traditionally labor intensive activities include project documentation generation, running effective meetings, and recording meeting outcomes. Equally important is time management, planning and reporting, and tracking project results.

Many projects are driven by a specific project methodology that guides the project procedure during its development and execution. In addition to the methodology practice there is often a requirement to manage change from a tactical viewpoint, keeping the project on time and on budget. Project managers need the tools to help them with these tactical requirements.

Because of the different situational requirements that can occur in a project, CS Odessa has provided two sections of ConceptDraw Solution Park specifically built for a project manager. Our solutions provide support for general project issues and for project methodologies. The ConceptDraw Solution Park toolbox has a variety of solutions that address issues faced daily by project managers. The methodology section includes solutions that provide assistance for small project and Agile project approaches. In the future, additional methodologies will be supported by ConceptDraw Solution Park.

The toolbox section of ConceptDraw Solution Park addresses many of the daily tasks necessary for project managers, such as creative planning, project changes, project environment, documentation, project presentation, effective meetings, personal time management, planning and reporting, dashboards, and tracking.

In practice, for many project tasks, the project methodology you use does not come into play. As project environments are volatile and ever-changing, you need a simple to use and powerful tool to help you with problem solving.

Project managers who struggle with daily challenges should look at what is available for use in the ConceptDraw Toolbox for Project Managers. To better support a specific project method, look at our methodology section that provides a range of solutions to support your project efforts.

Methodology Solutions

Project management is a branch of science that evolves quickly, and the pace is ever quickening. As a result, there are many methodologies that have developed unique characteristics so that they can better adapt to a project’s specifics. The meaning of the word “project”, as derived from Latin, means a unique event that does not repeat itself. Because of this attribute, no universal project methodology exists. Every methodology has its loyal supporters that understand the inherent strengths of that project method.

Selection and implementation of any project methodology in a company has a huge impact on financial and time resources. Project methodology can also impact organizational structure. Consequently most companies adapt a standard project methodology for all projects. Seldom are changes made in this decision because the changing of methodology is a costly process.

Innovative changes

Innovative changes occur within the methodology. These innovations result in the potential to save time, increase project quality, and also equip organizations to better adapt to unique situations. These adaptations improve productivity. Often, new projects leverage the experience gained from preceding projects. The net effect is improved ability to compete in the organization’s marketplace.

Our methodology solutions do not require any changes to existing company project processes. Our solutions introduce innovation into organizations. ConceptDraw project management solutions help organizations in many ways, and introducing innovation into the project management process is just one way companies can benefit from our products offerings. Innovation can increase your probability for success, and also save time and money resources.

The methodology solutions provided in ConceptDraw Solution Park are professional project tools that support one or many steps of the methodology you use increasing your overall effectiveness. Increased overall effectiveness improves the value of your project methodology in your organization.

Toolbox Solutions

Toolbox Solutions

Whatever methodology project managers use, there are always day-to-day issues in project management. These issues relate to planning, tracking, milestones, events, resource usage, and many more variables that are found in a typical project. The project environment always has a major impact on identifying critical or noncritical inside the project. For example, in one project, the distribution of resource assignments could be critical, in another project, the critical issue could involve team communication about the task completions status, accomplishing objectives, or just making a great project presentation.

The project environment always creates new tasks which do not fit in the direction of the primary project objectives. These new tasks are often not addressed in the framework of the chosen management methodology and can have a large impact on project success.

Following the management methodology may be required, however, the project environment can produce circumstances where addressing tasks can require project managers to use project tools that are not part of of the management methodology. It is normal for these types of tasks to occur, and they must be addressed to complete the project. Toolbox solutions from CS Odessa equip project managers with effective tools to deal with unique problems.
