Deliver complex projects
ON TIME.

 

Project management software that allows your teams to focus on critical tasks, respond to changes and deliver on time.

Late projects are frustrating, and they're not your fault.

“Modern day” project management methods were developed over sixty years ago when everything moved at the speed of the post office. Worse yet, the tools built to facilitate those dated methods can’t accommodate the speed, uncertainty and complexity inherent in today’s product development cycles.

The result — team members are working on the wrong thing at the wrong time — so the project slides a day — going unnoticed. This keeps happening until the target dates have come and gone. And no one knows why.

Developing great products shouldn’t be this hard!

What is the #1 Cause of Project Delays?
Daily Slips!

A single daily slip on the schedule doesn’t sound like much, but they accumulate over time and can easily double the length of your project. All without anyone noticing. 

But the symptoms are clear:

• Overloaded resources

• Lots of multitasking

• Out of date plans

And the formula is simple:

Is having correct priorities only 50% of the time common? Think of it this way:

formulas-02-1

But only one or two of these tasks will delay the project on any given day.

So how do you find them?

Solve real problems with the methods and software
developed to do just that. That’s Playbook.

Meet One of the Founders

David Paulson

By the end of his first day as a mechanical engineer, David realized he liked fixing process problems more than working on design problems. So after he had finished overhauling the engineering tools and processes there, he decided it would be fun to venture out and help other companies do the same. That was a long time ago.

Now his favorite role is to be a guide for the results-oriented leaders who are the change agents within their company.

Every journey is easier with advice from someone who has been there before.
