In business ventures and organisations, efficient and effective management in the form of planning, coordinating and monitoring activity is the "to be or not to be" criterion. This is where the myPARM software can help you.

We combine the 6-phase management system postulated by Professor Kaplan and Dr Norton (Harvard Business School) with the project management system myPARM, which has been tried and tested worldwide. This means strategic management can be combined seamlessly with operating activity within a business.

The web-based software is used by over 25,000 users in 38 countries, and covers all important subject areas from formulating the company vision to calculating project-related expenditure.

An overview of the most important functions of the myPARM software: strategy map; balanced scorecard; portfolio and programme management; multi-project management with GANTT, WBS, budgeting, resource allocation, time recording, invoicing, early warning system, risk and opportunity management, lessons learned etc. The software comes with integrated tools that support communication within the teams.

In order to help our customers progress, our specialist staff (IPMA Level A, PRINCE2, CMMI, PMBoK etc.) offer practical and scientific consultations as well as training in accordance with your individual needs.

Our software is based on the following concepts:

  • Balanced Scorecard (D. Norton, R. Kaplan, HBS)

  • Hoshin Kanri (Y. Akao)

  • Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (R. Bayney)

  • Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (E. Triantaphyllou)

  • Project Management Standards (PRINCE2, PMBOK, ICB, Scrum)

  • Sustainable Development (G.H. Brundtland, WCED)

  • International Accounting Standards (IFRS, IAS)

  • Risk- and Opportunity Management (ISO 31000, ONR 49000)

  • Getting Things Done (D. Allen)

  • Capability Maturity Model Integration (SEI)

  • Compliance (Sarbanes-Oxley-Act)

  • IT Governance (COBIT)

A risk-based approach to management

The evaluation of risks on the basis of the probability of their occurrence and the extent of any resulting damage together with the subsequent derivation of suitable measures forms the starting point for operative risk and opportunity management. Examples can be found in risk management standards such as ONR 49000 and ISO 31000.
The company management should not simply take over the legal and official requirements on a 1:1 basis, but also implement them with respect to the risks revealed by the quality and management information system.
With effect from 2008, Switzerland (as well as other countries) has made the provision of ICS documentation for all social systems mandatory. Its presence must be confirmed by an external auditor.


Project Management solutions in the Cloud

Cloud computing is the talk of the town and meanwhile becomes understood as solution for many problems and in response to the search for new approaches in IT. But, what does one understand by cloud and cloud computing actually?
