A national testing company was developing a new online assessment test that would ensure their competitive position. The program manager responsible for the initiative understood the enormity of the project and the criticality to the testing company’s leadership position. He realized he needed continuous and direct qualitative communication with the members of the various development teams to augment the statistical data found in his traditional project management software. Traditionally, this critical information was obtained when management walked around and met with team members. But because the teams were so large and disconnected the traditional technique wasn’t an option.
Fundamentally, the national testing company needed a solution that would:
Increase visibility into emerging concerns and issues of the project teams
Proactively identify risks
Improve communication across the various teams as well as between the development
organization and the project stake holders
The national testing company selected TrueProject to address their business needs. It provided them:
Accurate and timely team member perspectives and status
Multi-dimensional up-to-date information from all levels of the organization
Consistent communication with team members and project stakeholders
Early warnings to potential project risks
TrueProject provided the national testing company with a venue for team members to share their
concerns and issues. This information gave senior management daily, up-to-date visibility with the
appropriate detail to support executive decision making and highlighted disparities in perceptions
within the project team. Had those inconsistencies not been uncovered, significant effort and
associated costs would have been wasted. Most importantly, the timely delivery of several strategic
projects would have been jeopardized.
