Ongoing Group Project: Cross-Functional Excellence in Project Lifecycle:  A Template for a Lean and Effective Assessment

Efficient project management requires tools that are flexible enough to adjust to every context, but sturdy enough to be consistently effective.  The objective of this project is to develop, test and link a digital tool that can be used in the industry as a project management model.  The starting point comes from a previous project on the EU 6th framework: The KISOLL project. 

The steps in this process include:

  1. Develop a digital tool by modifying an existing one
  2. Select appropriate business cases and test tool
  3. Identify other existing similar tools and link models together
