Implementation of Clarity PPM

Individualized consulting on software selection, successful implementation with tried and tested methods, and reliable support for your change process by itdesign.

Scoping Workshop

We Know What Is Important to You

Our top priority is that you remain satisfied with your new tool. So before you make a decision to use Clarity PPM (CA PPM), we will conduct a scoping workshop with you to determine whether the software really suits your requirements. This will help us get a feel for your goals in terms of the later implementation steps as well as your environment and the planned project’s framework conditions. If you then decide in favor of Clarity PPM, you will benefit from our tried and tested implementation methods.

Thanks to the experience and project management expertise of itdesign specialists, we were able to accelerate the implementation schedule for Clarity PPM and minimize risks.

Proof of Concept

We Will Provide a Basis for Your Decision

We want to ensure that Clarity PPM (CA PPM) is really the right software for your company and provide you with an informed basis for making a decision. Before you make a final decision about the software and purchase licenses, we can offer to provide you with a Proof of Concept (PoC). We will set up a prototype of the system for you. Depending on your requirements, this can be done over a few weeks or even several months. At this point you will get a chance to try the system out. The best part is this: If you later decide to buy Clarity PPM, we can use any deliverables that are provided with the PoC as a starting point for the actual implementation.

Your benefits at a glance

  • Save time and money
  • Take advantage of our best practice experience
  • Test software without having to purchase a license
  • Select the appropriate expansion stage
  • Get a sound basis for decision-making
  • Get a basis for later implementation

The methodology of a Proof of Concept is ultimately to ensure that you are not sold a bill of goods. However, it was important for us to ensure from the start and in a very early project phase that Clarity offered everything we needed.

In addition to the technical and functional validation, the proof of concept also acted as internal marketing for Clarity. It enabled us to make the tool tangible for future users at an early stage and increase the acceptance for the introduction of a new software.

What was critical to overcoming these challenges was the Proof of Concept that we carried out. Here we were able to test all our requirements in practice and see whether the system worked as it should.


Stephan Watzka, Director Engineering R&D

The most important reason behind running a PoC was that it allowed us to put the software and the service provider to the test in advance so that we could answer the important questions that we had at the time. For us, the Proof of Concept was an important confidence-building measure that, in my opinion, should definitely be carried out when implementing any major software package.

The essential success factors for the introduction of a completely new tool are having a clear goal, good communication with a training at the end, sound project planning, specialist expertisestringency, and having fun carrying out the project.

Dr.-Ing. Uwe Kernchen, Head of Project Management Office

I would recommend that any company that wants to establish new processes (or tools) implement a six-month live phase for testing the processes. This allowed us to determine which optimizations and further requirements we still needed to implement for the introduction of digital approval.

Rolf Schmidt, Head of Project Management Center of Excellence

We need the acceptance of all users, and to this end we show them where and how added value is created – including beyond the boundaries of your business unit. It is important to sensitize users to these topics and to look at the topic holistically.


Stephan Watzka, Director Engineering R&D

Taking an iterative approach to implementing Clarity can significantly boost acceptance of the tool among future users. At TeamBank, we found that it’s very helpful to gradually introduce individual functions that are aimed at replacing our existing processes. This allows employees to get used to new ways of working and makes them more likely to embrace them. Over time, the range of functions can then be continuously expanded.
