Is your organization struggling with failed or delayed projects? Maybe you lack the visibility required to make important project decisions? Well, do not fret any longer! Below are some examples of four very different organizations, from very different industries, all using SharePoint to successfully manage their projects. This is proof that you can too!
AmSurg Leverages SharePoint for Project Management with a Template-Based Solution
AmSurg needed a way to track and manage the projects and programs they were undertaking, but the problem was that there was little organizational project management knowledge and few formal project management processes and policies. Also, whatever solution AmSurg chose had to leverage SharePoint, which was already in use throughout the organization.
AmSurg evaluated several project management solutions but settled on BrightWork for a number of reasons. They liked that BrightWork had:
- multiple pre-defined templates for not only small and medium projects but large projects as well
- the ability to modify the templates for their needs to create a customized project site template
- BrightWork worked on top of SharePoint which allowed AmSurg to leverage their technology investment.
Maranatha Baptist Bible College Realizes their Strategic Plan with SharePoint
Maranatha is an AQIP (“Academic Quality Improvement Program”) Institution, which requires extensive evidence of continuous quality improvement activity and processes.
Maranatha installed BrightWork on SharePoint and really liked the best practice templates approach to project management. They studied the available templates for “fit” into their existing infrastructure. Since they already had a good idea of what they needed to track, the college easily selected the appropriate BrightWork templates and customized them to meet the processes already established.
Thermal Dynamics Streamline Project Reporting and Compliance with SharePoint Solution
Pre-BrightWork, Thermal Dynamics was very unorganized and often one person did not know what another person was doing. To create simple reports was very time consuming as information was stored in several different places like email and Excel files.
They now manage all on-going projects with BrightWork and use the system as a one stop shop for reporting and compliance for the very strict APQP process.
