How will the Uruk Platform work and what will it offer?
This is a vast topic, and we cannot address it effectively here. This first link provides some insights. Further, this next article describes why we label Uruk as a “Solution,” and not a software “tool.” The core ideas are:
Governance: Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines
Uruk PPM will provide policies, procedures, and guidelines for the management of projects, programs, and portfolios. These are the things that a PMO should be building. However, to save the organization’s time and money, we are building the foundation. Consequently, with a good foundation, we can quickly customize it to a client.
Project Management Unit (PMU ~ PMO)
Next, Uruk PPM will also offer the functionalities for a Project Management Unit (PMU) to manage the whole portfolio. This would include the performance dashboards, reporting, lessons captured/learned, resource allocation, among other things.
Managing a Project
In addition to managing the portfolio, the core purpose of Uruk PPM Platform is to manage projects, all types of projects. However, projects in different domains are not the same and cannot be managed with a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Therefore, CAMMP starts with the standard model to developed tailored methods. Each tailored method would be suitable for a given type of projects. For example, a tailored method for facilities projects, another for outreach and marketing projects, etc. Consequently, we will be building these tailored methods in the system. Ultimately, with this functionality, organizations can save a great deal of time if they do not have to develop their methods from scratch. Also, what we provide could be customized further for a given client.
With this, we have enough background to get back to the core question, How to start a project in the Uruk PPM Platform?
