Project'Or RIA is a Project Organizer Rich Internet Application.
Project'Or RIA focuses on IT Projects, but is also compatible with all kinds of Projects.
Its purpose is to propose a unique tool to gather all the information about the projects.
The fact is that many Project Management softwares just focus on planning. But it is a much too restrictive point of view. Of course planning is an important activity of Project Management and is one of the keys to Project success, but it is not the only one.
Project Managers need to foresee all what can happen, measure risks, build action plan and mitigation plan.
It is also important to track and keep traces of all what is happening to the Project : incidents, bugs , change requests, support requests, ...
In this objective, Project'Or RIA gives visibility at all levels of Project Management.
At lower level, the Project follow-up consists in gathering all information, and maintain it up to date. This involves all the operational team.
At upper level, Project Steering uses the follow-up data to take the decisions and build the action plan. This allows to bring the adjustments needed to target on the objectives of the project.
The goal of Project'Or RIA is to be Project Management Method independent. Whatever your choice on the method, you can use Project'Or RIA.
Just remember :
"It always takes longer than you expect, even if you take Hofstadter's Law into account"
"Whatever can go wrong will go wrong"
"... and at the worst possible time, in the worst possible way."
This simply means that whatever your planning is, it is wrong !
