Project Online Sprint - Project Execution

Project Online offers you a powerful platform to improve your project management execution. The solution supports the full life-cycle from capturing the business case to closing the project all within a single interface and user experience. Project Online is quick to set up and the realization of benefits does not require months of design and analysis.

We have organized the functionality of Project Server into the following, high-level progression from defining the work (business case) to managing the work (project execution). Each of our Sprint offerings focus on specific components of this progression.
