Solutions for Teamwork® - Methodological framework
Solutions for Teamwork®, SofT™ is a model that describes an organisation with all its resources and the decision-making process for the use of these resources in projects and for line work. It also provides a framework of methods for the practical application of resource planning and monitoring of projects and resources. The methods applied are well aligned with the principles of Lean, Scrum, Kanban and "Hoshin Kanri" which is part of TQM (Toyota model). Hoshin Kanri stands for direct traceability between strategic decisions and daily operations. For an organisation wishing to apply PRINCE2, the Solutions for Teamwork® framework and the LeanFour™ Enterprise PMO software are a useful complement.
The commissioning organisation, portfolio owners and operational responsibility for each project are an important part of the framework as well as how benefit realisation becomes a transparent part of the initiative. An organisation working under Solutions for Teamwork® will rapidly increase its project maturity.
