There is no other product that does what Meisterplan does in terms of portfolio management and resource management without unessential extra features. If there were another product that does what Meisterplan does, I would have found it, because I tried them all.

The biggest value that Meisterplan gives us is the ability to communicate across the enterprise what’s being worked on. It adds transparency as to why things are stacked ranked, and it holds people accountable to decisions that were made. This has resulted in more projects being completed on time, and more projects being aligned to a strategy, because they were accurately prioritized.

Why itdesign Is 100% Invested in Meisterplan

From Idea to Successful Cloud Software Solution

You learn a lot when you partner with numerous companies that have lots of projects to manage over a long period of time. For example, you learn what drives your customers and where the greatest challenges are. Numerous such discussions led us to the idea of developing our own software for project portfolio management. We realized that we need a cloud software package that was distilled down to the bare essentials and that could properly solve the core challenges that many of our customers face. The Meisterplan tool was developed in 2013, and the Lean PPM method was formulated in 2015.
