More About Our Methodologies

You can also license our Project Management methodologies. Here is another look at our most-popular one:

The Small Project Guide is our universal project management method for small projects. It covers three levels:

  • Just Do It for 1-24 hour projects,
  • Very Small Project for 25-120 hour projects, and
  • Small Project Guide for 121-360+ hour projects. For each path, we provide templates and narrative instructions.

For Information Technology

Our Information Technology products and services use the same Project Management terminology, methods, tools and techniques as our Enterprise versions, but are scaled up for higher-risk Information Technology projects.

  • The Small Project Guide™ works in Information Technology projects, too! Probably half your staff work in small projects, and many are not managed like projects, just work that needs to be done by the end of the week. Or month. As above, our Small Project Management method has three levels:
    • Just Do It for 1-24 hour projects,
    • Very Small Project for 25-120 hour projects, and
    • Small Project Guide for 121-360+ hour projects.
  • Quest For Better Estimates helps you get better estimates, faster! And, it helps you identify how to get better actuals as well. Isn’t it time you achieved success in your Quest for Better Estimates?
