Project Sites: A platform for PMOs to leverage their teams potential

Have you ever looked at a Project Schedule/Plan and wondered, why did it exceed the budget and extend past the baseline? What’s the story behind this plan?

To figure this story out, you may have to gather documents from emails, shared drives, and interview whichever resources are still around from the project! Wouldn’t it be great if all of this information was in a single place?

Better yet, wouldn’t it be even better if we could easily leverage the Team’s abilities by providing a common location to share, create and collaborate on project-specific information in a secure manner such as conversations, ideas, and document issues, risks, and more?

Well, with KwikPMO in Project Online/Server, every project is provided a SharePoint project site based on a robust template instilled with best practices right out of the gate. This site is available to be accessed by your specific project team and includes your document templates, sections for posting conversations, tracking Action Items, Issues, Risks, Stakeholders, Change Requests, Lessons Learned and more. Each project even has it’s own OneNote Notebook which allows team members to easily track requirements, minutes, and project Notes right from their browser or desktop.

And since the Project Online is built on SharePoint this information can have version control and is searchable across all projects! Using the Project Site within Project Server/Online enables your team to capture the story behind the schedule!
