Tools for Fools

 

We just released the Tools for Fools research report. Tools for Fools looks at Enterprise Project and Portfolio Management Solutions (EPPMS).  Tools for Fools report is an advanced thinking research report.  The purpose of this report is to present five years of research on the value of EPPMS.  In this report we consider if EPPMS increases the value of project investments. In this report we consider if EPPMS increases customer satisfaction of your project investments.  In this report we consider if EPPMS increases project success rates.  In this report we consider if EPPMS cut average project costs. Finally, in this report we consider if EPPM solutions provide a clearer picture of project progress. This report has been greatly influenced by mining the current CHAOS database, which has more than 50,000 project profiles and users of EPPMS.

This is outline of the report:
