Straighten up and fly right

Challenge:

The application development team for one of the world’s largest airlines used Primavera but the company wanted a more uniform approach to coordinate with other methodologies, project management and timekeeping software. The airline also wanted to forecast resource usage to better predict labor needs.

What we did:

We created custom training programs that extended beyond Primavera. It included software quality assurance, basic software schedule building and software configuration management, which provided consistency through planning various projects. We mentored coaches to better support the user community, created reports to help forecast resource needs and supported the user community through various hour-long (brown bag) seminars.

Results:

The airline could generate reports and project templates from Primavera to provide better visibility for project performance.
