What our customers say
Track+ is a great software. We primarily used it as a Bug Tracking Tool. We shortly understood to focus on issue tracking. Today we are using Track+ with the objective to be able to track any technical aspects of software and/or Systems.
We are using this tool to manage our master students’ term projects. Having to support a lot of projects dealing with real-time systems development, we couldn't handle this situation without this tool.
Agile project management software
Scrum is a process framework to manage projects "agile" (agile management). Scrum is best suited for the development of products and applications. The agile project management software Track+ Genji makes working with Scrum easy: with sprints, backlogs, epics and user stories, task board and burn down charts. Increase your team speed and continuously improve your process flows!
What is lifecycle project management?
By "lifecycle" project management we understand the management of such projects, which must deliver a defined product at a given date within a given cost frame. It is therefore not possible to negotiate during the project what can be delivered at which time. Lifecycle project management requires careful planning of the costs for the individual work steps or partial products. This results in a large number of operations which must be managed.
How does classic project management work?
The so-called "waterfall model" best explains how classical project management works. It is often used in companies with a hierarchical organizational structure. In doing so, large projects are divided into several phases, which are consistently carried out in the defined order. The elements of the traditional waterfall model are, like the PDCA cycle, the planning of the project (project plan taking into account the requirements), the execution (design, implementation, test), the observation and finally the ending of the project (delivery).
Pros and cons of classic project management
At the forefront of classical project management is the high degree of planning certainty. The project process is precisely defined at the beginning of the project in a plan, as well as a fixed delivery date, assigned resources and contractually agreed costs. Due to the ordered structure, large projects can also be planned and implemented in an extraneous way. Classical project management is particularly interesting for projects which have very constant requirements and do not require short-term correction loops. Here, the essential disadvantage of classical project management is already apparent. Thus it is unsuitable for projects with many unpredictable requirements due to lack of flexibility. There is a risk that errors will only be discovered and corrected at a later date, which usually entails high additional costs.
What is hybrid project management?
Hybrid project management is a combination of classic and agile project management. This pragmatic approach is mainly used in industries with high innovative pressure, such as the information and telecommunications technology market and the automotive industry with short time-to-market sequences.
Hybrid project management aims at a more flexible handling of continuous change requirements, a stronger orientation of the project results to the market requirements and a shortening of the implementation time of the project compared to the classic project management.
To this end, agile methods are integrated into a classically structured set-up and sequence organization or introduced into subprojects and provided with suitable interfaces. Then, e.g. The administrative areas like marketing and business development according to classical methods and the software development according to agile methods led. A modern project management software must therefore be a first-rate Scrum software or Kanban software, as well as a classic project management tool.
Collaboration software for project management
Modern project organization is no longer a matter of solitary project managers. Especially when looking at agile software development, one can see how much the team's role is concerned with project management. This development is particularly pressing in other areas of work, in many cases a mixture of agile and good practice is considered to be promising.
A modern project management software is therefore also from the start also a collaboration software, which must have anchored the idea of cooperation also in the management of a project in their DNA.
