Sensei Project Solutions Launches Sensei Agile Template Support for Microsoft Project 2013

Share Article

Sensei Project Solutions, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of the Agile Project Management Template for use in the Microsoft PPM environment, supporting Microsoft Project 2013 as well as Project Online/Server.

The Sensei Agile Project Management template provides a project management framework that will support your project team as they plan and execute on the agile rituals which are critical for ensuring that your projects are effectively managed. Adherence to these rituals differentiates well-run agile projects from chaotic ad-hoc software developments based on iterative development without any discipline.

Applying this template ensures that a repeatable management process is applied, thereby ensuring consistency with Agile development methods, while at the same time expanding on the traditional use of the Microsoft Project tool to maintain the all-important User Story and a flexible iterative development approach. This template provides both an Agile Management Framework and a Sprint Framework for managing the User Stories for delivery in Releases and Sprints. This breaks the stereotype that Microsoft Project is suitable only for traditional sequential development and provides you with the tools you need to successfully deliver iterative and incremental Agile projects using the tools you are already using in our organization.

The template also provides a complete suite of Agile reports to provide the necessary “information radiators” for managing both the project and the individual sprints with resource management and burn-down chart graphical reports.

According to Steve Caseley, PMI-ACP and Scrum Master Certified, “Sensei’s Agile template provides a total solution for existing Microsoft PPM users to allow organizations to easily introduce Agile as a fully supported delivery approach. The Agile template provides everything needed to jumpstart Agile development in any organization.”

“I am very excited to have the Agile solution added to our suite of PPM Solutions. This really gives Sensei the edge to providing holistic value to our clients,” said Jennifer Michelle, Managing Partner & VP of Client Services at Sensei. There are two very significant benefits of using this template in Microsoft Project for your agile projects: First, you are able to leverage existing licenses, training and experience with Microsoft Project; and second, managing both traditional and agile projects in Microsoft Project and Project Server/Online enables integrated Project Portfolio and Resource Management, effectively allowing for reporting of all projects to senior management in a single integrated dashboard.
