Spider Project

 

Two week virtual Masterclass

 

Spider Project is a powerful and functional scheduling tool that offers numerous unique functional features and is the only project management software that supports both – Waterfall and Agile deliveries.

It enables resource, cost and material constrained scheduling and budgets optimisation for projects and portfolios.

It includes two methods of risk simulation and is the only tool that accurately simulates project risks considering all existing constraints and potential risk responses.

Is this virtual Masterclass for me?

For effective waterfall and agile integrated project, program, and portfolio management it is critical to have the right tool. Spider Project enables Innovative Scheduling by:

  • Activity Modelling;
  • Resource Modelling
  • Network Modelling and Analysis
  • Cost Management Options
    • Corporate Reference-books
    • Typical Fragment Library
    • Risk Simulation
  • Performance Management
  • Portfolio Management
  • Reporting
  • Effective Usability

If you’d like to learn Spider Project and be able to apply all of the advantages it brings to enable powerful planning and delivery, then this class is for you!
