From project initiation to portfolio optimization, Easy Projects supports your entire Work lifecycle
When the sales team identifies a qualified opportunity, a project is created within Easy Projects (CRM integration).
The Project Manager prepares a project plan that includes an estimated budget and timeline by using a template from a similar opportunity in the past. The plan will contain soft scheduling and resource allocation estimates to enable the sales team to quote with confidence and close the deal.LEARN MORE
The Sales team works with the PMO and Delivery Managers to review all planned projects. Both potential client and internal initiatives are prioritized and ranked based on a set of specific evaluation criteria. Resource and Project Managers work to identify and soft-allocate the right resources based on skills, availability, and fit. Potential resource and schedule conflicts are identified and resolved.
The Sales team presents the final project proposal including a schedule to the client for approval. The client can be added as a Guest User to drive more engagement during the client review and decision phase.LEARN MORE

Once the project is completed, the Project Manager and/or PMO conducts project post mortem, records all lessons learned, and shares them with the Sales and Executive Teams. This information becomes available for future project assessments, planning, and portfolio optimization.
The portfolio optimization process takes risk assessment, project value, strategic alignment, resource prioritization, and lessons learned into account to drive continuous improvement in your portfolio management initiatives.LEARN MORE
