This article was what kicked off the Microsoft TechNet “From the Trenches” column which I still write for. It addresses a key question: When deploying an EPM system should you a) make a big bang type of approach to release all designed EPM functionality at once or b) go with a more phased approach. And, if so, why?
The EPM Guidance Site has been delivering project management content for some time now but a fresh coat of paint and some refurbishment is long overdue. Please bear with me as I get the site redesigned more around a blogging theme. It should make it easier to navigate, easier to find the content that is of use to you and easier to share information that is of use to you when you come across it.
Microsoft has published another article of mine on TechNet. This article is called “Cancelling your project without cancelling your career and will be of interest to both project managers and timesheet administrators as well, of course, to those managing stage gating processes, project management offices and project portfolios
Microsoft has published an article of mine on TechNet. This article will be of interest not only to project managers but also those deploying and configuring timesheet systems as it looks at how to determine how many charge codes to have and to what level of detail charge codes should be defined. See this post for all the links and details.
HMS Software has just released TimeControl 6.5 and it represents a major evolution of TimeControl. HMS has added a major new reporting-writing engine, a completely new link option for linking to their new alliance partner Hard Dollar’s HD project cost and estimating system and significant improvements in both performance and other functionality. See this blog post for more information.
We’ve just published another free solutions portal on the TimeControl.com website designed to share best practices on timesheet usage to all. The portal is free.
HMS has just released TimeControl Industrial version 6.4. This is a major upgrade to TimeControl Industrial and brings Industrial’s Field Data Collection functionality together with our great TimeControl 6 architecture..
Training for enterprise systems like TimeControl is never really complete because the organization adapts and evolves as it uses the software. Training for such systems is best done in layers or phases.
