All projects at first view
With Allegra you always have the overview of your entire project portfolio. Everyone understands the presentation immediately, even without project management seminars.
Allegra is easy to use. You only activate the control elements that you need. So you can offer users, who rarely use the system, a fully configured interface with just two buttons, while at the same time, the the power user is getting unlocked to all, what's there.
Projectmanagement software with cockpit
The freely configurable cockpit shows you all important project information at first view. A variety of charts are at your disposal. There is a cockpit for each project, and a personal cockpit, that can provide cross-project information.
Recognize anomalies early
Allegra shows you early if there are deviations from the baseline. With the practical milestone trend analysis chart and the performance value method, you can precisely and reliably identify where there are difficulties. So you can take countermeasures in time.
Interactive Gantt chart
Using the web-based Gantt chart, you can quickly and easily create a project structure plan that you can keep up to date throughout the project with little effort.
In real-time you follow the progress of the project, move appointments directly in the diagram and observe how the dependent appointments are automatically moved along with them. You can have the critical path shown directly to you and compare the current plan with the baseline at any time.
You can easily switch between the Gantt representation and e.g. switch the taskboard view and use the best of the planning oriented practice and agile project management for you.
Resource planning is easy
Allegra makes resource planning easy. You can plan people, but also skill profiles, devices and rooms. Assign resources to projects and survey at any time who is working with which tasks in which project.
Scalable 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 Allegra 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 processes!
Project status reports
Use the many report templates in Allegra for easy and quick reporting. So you get a quick overview of where your projects are, how your employees and you yourself and where there are bottlenecks, budget overruns or deadline problems.
What is classic project management?
By "classical" project management or "traditional" project management we mean the management of projects that have to deliver a defined product within a given budget within a certain time. It can not be negotiated during the project, which can be delivered on which date. Classical project management requires a careful planning of expenses for the individual work steps or partial products. This results in a large number of processes at the beginning, which must be managed.
How does classic project management work?
The so-called "waterfall model" explains best how classic project management works. It is often used in companies with a hierarchical organizational structure. Large projects are divided into several phases, which are carried out consistently in the specified sequence. The elements of the traditional waterfall model include, as in the PDCA cycle, the planning of the project flow (project plan taking into account the requirements), the execution (design, implementation, test), the observation and finally the termination of the project (delivery).
Pros & cons of classic project management
In the foreground is the high planning security with classical project management. The project process is specified in a plan at the beginning of the project, as well as a fixed delivery date, allocated resources and contracted costs. Due to the ordered structure even large projects can be planned and executed. Classic project management is particularly interesting for projects that have very consistent requirements and do not require short-term correction loops. Here, the main disadvantage of classical project management is already recognizable. So it is unsuitable for projects with many unforeseen changes in requirements due to lack of flexibility. There is a risk that errors will be discovered and corrected at a late stage, which is usually associated with 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 innovation 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 requests, a stronger orientation of the project results to the market needs and a shortening of the implementation time of the project compared to the classical project management.
For this purpose, agile methods are integrated into a classically oriented structure and process organization or introduced in subprojects and provided with suitable interfaces. Then, for example, the administrative areas such as marketing and business development are managed according to classical methods and software development according to agile methods.
Modern project management software therefore has to be a first-class Scrum software or Kanban software as well as a classic project management tool.
