Congratulations! Your project’s finally coming to the end of its lifecycle. Everything has gone swimmingly and you are pretty pleased with the results, the team, and, of course, yourself. It’s about now you’re beginning to think closedown; that period in which a multitude of activities, reports, and checklists will fill your head, days, and possibly some nights too.

Project teams are, now more than ever, under immense stress to do more with less. Unfortunately, most enterprise teams have to use five or more tools/software to manage all their work processes because traditional project and portfolio management (PPM) tools are riddled with process holes.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1893"] Image from webfinancialsolutions.com[/caption] If you are a company executing work in an agile way, it probably looks something like this: Business managers and product owners plan projects and releases based off company strategy. The planning can be waterfall-ish, though lean enough to adjust for changes in priority. This plan is usually created in some sort of project management tool or spreadsheets. Agile team leads then work with the business and project managers to determine what to work on in the next iteration or two. Some teams plan further out to have a better idea of what can be included... Read More
