Gain visibility and valuable insights about your programs and projects, and generate better decisions based on data.
Methoda is offering an advanced PPM solution based on Atlassian Jira & Confluence. The solution is satisfying a wide range of PPM and Project Management needs.
The solution is built on top of Atlassian Jira, the leading platform for project and task management (for Agile or Non-Agile teams). This provides a strong connection between the actual progress of the tasks at the team level to the aggregated status at the portfolio level.
We at Methoda understand methodology and provide a perfect blend of methodology and tools to satisfy your business needs. We understand that there is no one solution that fits all. Our generic solution is fully customizable and we can tailor it to your specific needs.
Our PPM solution is suitable for Agile or Waterfall methods, as well as for organizations working in hybrid mode.
Following is a short overview of our generic Atlassian PPM Solution:
Manage a hierarchy of programs and projects, including smart color indicators based on calculated formulas derived from your business rules. Indicators include timeline, resources, risks, budget, scope, progress, and quality.
Optionally define strategic/business goals and link each goal to project(s) and each project to goal(s).
Schedule Planning and Tracking
Plan program, project and product timelines at any level, using roadmaps and Gantt. Visualize dependencies and baselines. Create what-if scenarios.
Define a project “time buffer” and monitor the consumption trend of the buffer.
We support all methods, e.g. Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Waterfall, Hybrid, SAFe.
Allocate generic or named resources for project phases or tasks and analyze resource utilization and workload. Generate automatic resource leveling for supporting the planning process.
Manage Risks for each project, linked to projects, project phases or to any entity in the system. Manage risk mitigation and contingency tasks. Configure notification and escalation rules.
Requirements/ Scope Management
Manage the life cycle of business requirements to actual technical implementation. Support the prioritization process and help define the scope.
Link scope items (requirements) to project phases and monitor scope per phase.
Content and Documentation Management
Using Atlassian Confluence (best of breed content management platform), link project documentation to the portfolio tree, to view the recent project status, overview, and more.
Manage revisions and history of all content. Use tailored templates to create new content. Automatically aggregate existing content.
Keep everyone aligned with collaboration features such as comments on every system entity (e.g. milestone, project phase, risk mitigation task), subscribe to changes in every system entity, and mention your colleagues to initiate a discussion around an entity.
All discussions are captured right inside the tool and are searchable. Attach files and link any two entities to capture relations.
Connect to your messaging platform, such as Microsoft Teams or Slack.
It is possible to define additional workflow approvals to gain the level of control you need for major changes.
Changes to system entities are governed by a permission scheme that is fully customizable.
Automate Business Processes
Use the built-in automation engine to create automation rules. Define trigger events and automatic tasks, and cut manual work.
Create Sandboxes for evaluating changes to schedules (what-if) and analyzing the impact on resource utilization in real-time.
Financial Info Management
Define project budget, expected expenses (CAPEX/OPEX, labor or non-labor), revenues, and capture budget baselines. Monitor actual expenses and revenues, including real-time analysis of labor costs per work rates.
View and update information on the go, from your mobile device. Assign tasks and risks, update project status, view open issues, and more, all from your phone or tablet.
BI and Dashboards
View dashboards with aggregated information on projects and programs, with the ability to drill down as needed. Create your own customizable charts and dashboards to allow you to get valuable insights regarding your projects and products status.
