Method123 Announces the Release of Their New Acceptance Management Process Template

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2010) - Project Management Software industry leader Method123 announced today that they have just released a new Acceptance Management Process template as part of their Project Management Kit product offering.

Method123's Project Management Kit contains over fifty full featured Project Management Templates. The kit has sold more than 1 million units worldwide meaning project managers around the globe are using these templates to more efficiently and effectively manage the projects they oversee.

An Acceptance Management Process is a set of processes, policies, and procedures used by an organization during the project planning process to formally define the acceptance of deliverables on projects. By setting up agreed upon criteria up front, the delivery team knows what it takes to completely deliver a product, what the acceptance criteria is, and how to obtain customer signoff and approval. Likewise, the customer understands their role and responsibilities in the deliverable and testing acceptance process. By formalizing these processes, the chances for swifter approval of deliverables is much higher.

"The project manager and team are busy enough with the ongoing process of managing and executing on the project," states Jason Westland, CEO and president of Method123 Ltd. "Having a well defined plan for getting deliverables accepted and signed off during the project can really help the forward progress of the project. It's never a good thing when a project gets held up because a deliverable isn't passing customer acceptance."

Indeed, with Method123's Acceptance Management Process that concern should be a thing of the past. This template removes the guess work from knowing whether or not your deliverable will meet the customer's acceptance criteria. That's all defined in the Project Plan at the beginning of the project.

With the Acceptance Management Process in place, the project manager and team can:


--  Work with the customer to fully define the exact criteria that each
    deliverable must meet in order to be accepted 
--  Define review and acceptance deadlines and timeframes for project
    deliverables 
--  Identify all roles and responsibilities for deliverable review, user
    acceptance testing, and final implementation review and signoff 
--  Track the status of all deliverables and acceptance throughout the
    engagement 
--  Define the approval process in detail for each deliverable and testing
    process 

"Our templates are designed for project managers by project managers," says Westland. "We've put every ounce of our project management field experience into developing usable and meaningful templates. There are a lot of plans, documents, and forms that must be completed as part of the normal Project Management Methodology. By using our templates those documents get completed in minutes or hours rather than days or weeks."

As with all of Method123's templates, the Acceptance Management Process includes helpful hints and tips for completing all of the information. Detailed instructions are also included to help both experienced and novice project managers produce professional plans and processes. And many sections come pre-completed with sample information to make filling in accurate and meaningful information very easy.

The Acceptance Management Process is available for purchase and download separately or as part of the Project Management Kit. For more information, please visit Method123's website at Method123.com.
