Dragon1 Benefits

It has been indisputably proven that practitioners who master Dragon1 method and tools distinguish themselves in the delivery of complex IT programmes - it would enable, for example, project managers to communicate with clients at a sustainable strategic level using visualizations to prove key aspects in design, implementation, and satisfactory stakeholder management.

Next to qualitative benefits, such as overview and insight in inter-relationship and interdependency for enterprise-structures, Dragon1 realizes also quantitative benefits.

Dragon1, for example, reduces (30%) overhead in relation to unnecessary work and thus time wastage draining project budgets. It increases the ability to complete projects earlier and cheaper (30%), releasing risk capital held in reserve to cover project implementation failure.

Below you find several projects that have Dragon1 in their implementation.
