You don’t actually want project management. What you want is to finalise your software project on time and stick to your budget. You want to develop a solution that satisfies the requirements of your users. You want to work in an agile way that also facilitates reliable planning. You want to be guaranteed a fixed price, even though your requirements are not very detailed to begin with. You want to maintain an overview of your resources and budgets. And when it is finished, you want to be able to document every last penny of your successful project. We don’t sell you project methodologies. What you get with us is a successful project. The appropriate methods come at no extra cost!
We work together with you to develop the right methodology for your project. We don’t mind if it’s an agile approach or a waterfall model. We are not evangelists for the agile approach. Equally, we know that the waterfall model isn’t the only way of doing things. This is because we are convinced that every project really is different, so every project needs an individually tailored approach. We are just as convinced, however, that there are similarities between behaviour patterns and processes. This is why most of our approaches can be used in any project. We want your project to be a success. The methodology we use simply serves this one purpose. Nothing more and nothing less.
The corporate culture, the goals, the people involved, the service providers – if you want to successfully implement projects, there are numerous elements to consider. Although the project method you choose is just one element, it is an important element. It brings all the other elements together and guarantees that the whole project will develop in the direction you intended.
You should not need to spend your time studying concepts such as agility, Scrum, waterfall, fixed price, PMBOK® Guide, Prince2, expectation management, project controlling or team barometer and carving out the sections that are relevant for your project. Our experts have drawn up and implemented customised projects for numerous companies. When it comes to structuring your projects, you can rely on adesso’s wide-ranging expertise.
Our Pragmatic IT Project Management (PITPM) model takes into account your company’s requirements and processes. Predetermined processes, the subdivision into phases and disciplines, and the availability of integrated templates serve to increase your productivity and improve your project outcomes. Niklas Spitczok von Brisinski (adesso) and Guy Vollmer (Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts) introduce the approach in their book entitled ‘Pragmatisches IT-Projektmanagement’ (Pragmatic IT Project Management). They developed the approach, which is based on the PMBOK® Guide.
