PPM Best Practices that Bring Value

Our learnings and industry best practices are embedded in the Planisware solution.

Long-Term Experience

In 1992, we created the original Planisware software to provide Arianespace, EDF, and Sanofi a tool to manage investments, more accurately plan activities and resources, and increase transparency over their project portfolios. Today, we serve over 290 additional product organizations across 4 continents - and our software is being used to manage over $60 billion in annual R&D investments.

From the very beginning, we've partnered with our customers to solve their key business issues. Years of experience working with leaders at the forefront of innovation have provided an understanding of industry-specific business processes and insight to better address key issues.

Industry Best Practice Accelerators

We pass the value of our long time experience to our customers by embedding them directly into our solution through core functionality that support leading practices and business processes, and align with institutional standards, including those defined by Stage-Gate, Inc, the Project Management Institute (PMI), Six Sigma, Agile, and the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA).

We also offer industry-specific best practice reference models that include governance and team process maps as well as project templates, profit & loss (P&L) templates, data model structures, scorecard templates, deliverable templates, and industry specific key performance indicators (KPI) and dashboards, where applicable.

Best practice functionality as well as industry reference models allow you to adopt best practices as you adopt the system, reduce implementation time, and accelerate time-to-value. Take our recommended reference models readily, use them to benchmark your own processes, or evaluate them as an opportunity to enhance current day processes and collateral.

Putting Best Practices into Practice

Implementing a PPM tool itself does not equate to excellence in PPM. Organizations need to apply disciplined, ongoing effort to mature and gain the most value out of their PPM solution.

Whether your organization is large or mid-sized, has already established PPM processes or is just beginning to develop them, Planisware’s FlexPace implementation approach was designed to help smooth your organization’s path throughout the implementation process, and provide guidance and support for your evolving processes.
