Abstract [en]

There are several Project Management Softwares on

the market today. These tools are powerful and

extensive to the degree they become too timeconsuming

and complex and therefore often defeat

its original purpose. This is the case especially

when the project manager is inexperienced and/or

the scope of the project is moderate.

The purpose of this thesis arose from this context,

there seems to be a gap between a home-made MS

Excel spread sheet and the advanced softwares

available. The thesis and the product has been

developed in alliance with Faveo Project

Management with the shared goal to create a tool

which is easy to use but still covers the essential

areas of project management theory. The tool will

be used internally by Faveo-employees as well as

externally together with Faveo’s clients in an

educational purpose. The product is based on

Faveo’s project management model, inspired by

Project Management Institute (PMI).

The product has been developed through extensive

studies of literature, one survey sent to active

project managers and interviews with people

involved in project management from Faveo and

academic researchers. The tool has been developed

in MS Excel Visual Basics for Applications (VBA) and

is based on spread sheets representing tools from

the different fields of knowledge in project

management. The tool is designed to give an

integrated understanding of the complexity of

project management.

The result is Faveo Project Management Tool, which

will be available August 1st, 2011 at the Faveo web

site.
