The effective collaboration of your project team is a critical success factor for your projects.
Facing a stronger distribution and specialization of teams - with external and internal staff - it becomes more and more important to successfully coordinate activities within a project.
Meanwhile agile approaches become relevant to manage the collaboration of teams.
Classic project management approaches struggle often, especially in regards to the ad hoc coordination of activities, since tasks need to be determined and are assigned in a static way. A flexible management of activities of a distributed team is rarely supported.
Since we are not aware of a suitable tool within the SAP domain adressing those challenges, we created P&PM´s [PIT].
