Uruk PPM Platform, Critical Differentiators
What differentiates the Uruk PPM Platform from the competition? In addition to being a unique and pioneering platform, there are many differentiators, but to keep it brief, we only discuss the most vital.
Speed of implementation and transformation: For organizations that do not have a well-established project management system, framework, or methodological approach, and are willing to accept our solution, we can have them up and running on the new system within hours or days. We can enable them to start transforming their project management and product delivery performance almost immediately and with minimal upfront investment. Even if an organization requires customizations (fit-for-purpose), we would be able to handle quickly and efficiently.
Let us offer a context: if an organization, even a small one, wants to develop an effective project management system, it could cost a few hundred thousand US$. We could reduce this to a few thousand and with the cloud-based system.
- Built-in tailoring capabilities: Another critical differentiator is that an organization can use the same platform to manage different types of projects, since the platform will have numerous built-in versions that would be suitable for different kinds of projects and regardless of size and complexity(project classification).
The envisioned fully developed Uruk PPM Platform will have versions for Micro Projects, Small-Simple Projects, Medium-Moderate Complexity Projects, Large-Complex Projects, and possibly even Mega Projects.

- Guidance and ease of use: The Uruk PPM Platform will be easy to use since it will include the methodology built-in that would guide even an in-experienced project manager, step by step. It will consist of all templates, flowcharts, samples, case studies, and the workflow to facilitate collaborations and communications across the organizational levels. We will also provide various learning resources in the open knowledge center.
Furthermore, project managers can see the completed projects in their organizations; real case studies from their specific work environment. We just killed Google Search.
- Transparency, the power of history and organizational memory: One more factor to consider here is the consolidated knowledge database. Imagine that you are a project manager with a given organization, and you are asked to manage a project. There is no formal company guidelines, procedures, or methodology. You ask around for help, and you get snippets. So you may spend time on Google or Bing and bingo, you lost many hours, but you have not started yet; and what you found might not be relevant.
Well, now imagine that the company did a very similar project three years ago using the Uruk PPM Platform. The history is there; the project information is there, templates, charter, project management plan, schedule, and even cost estimate and risk assessments. All of that gold is sitting there waiting for you, and all you need to start is a couple of clicks, or maybe a few clicks. Then it is time for CPM, Copy-Paste-Modify. Copy the project files and start your project by modifying all of those things that are unique to your project. How many hours/days/weeks would you save? We would guess hundreds of hours, even on a small-simple project
We can summarize all of the above in a few words, why re-invent the wheel?
Regardless of where you are in the world or what organization you work for, there are many similarities in the project management practice, so why do we reinvent the wheel? We want to let you focus on the unique features of every project and drive the team creativity and innovation to create rather than replicate.
