Certification by the TÜV SÜD Examination Institute
HERMES is the project management method from Switzerland for all types of projects. It is a standard of the federal administration for IT projects, as well as many cantons and municipalities, and is also used in the private sector. HERMES ensures a shared understanding of the project and supports all project team members in efficiently and successfully fulfilling their tasks and responsibilities. With its clear structure, HERMES supports various applications and can be easily adapted to the needs of the project.

First the scope: Virtually every IT project brings with it changes to other areas of the organization. The scenarios can be used to manage organizational projects, service procurement and IT development projects with the same basic elements.
Then the depth: The modules are fully described with roles, activities and outcomes. The "Project steering" and "Project management" modules are particularly well integrated.
Continuing to focus on what matters: An experienced project manager is able to very quickly choose exactly the components in exactly the form that are expedient for a specific project.
Last but not least: The documentation online and the support with templates are exemplary, save time and money and therefore offer major added value.
