Espoo, FINLAND


ESPOO, Finland, March 7, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- The management of the IT and planning department of the National Swedish Prisons and Probation Administration chooses TietoEnator's PPS method, Practical Project Management, as its project management method. The method is branch-independent and is based on more than fifteen years experience of project work. The National Swedish Prisons and Probation Administration will thereby have access to a well-tried working method for the planning, execution and follow-up of its internal IT projects.

- We decided on PPS since the method is simple and easy to apprehend. It is a well-tried concept with well-planned routines and models, says Lars Johansson, IT manager at the National Swedish Prisons and Probation Administration.

The contract includes, for example, the right to utilize PPS in the operations via PPS On-Line licenses, services related to the method as well as training for different target groups within the National Swedish Prisons and Probation Administration.

- The greatest strength of PPS is that it is a complete concept where we offer both training and assistance for the introduction of the method into the customer's organization. We are very pleased about the deal with the National Swedish Prisons and Probation Administration and regard it as the beginning of beneficial co-operation for both parties, says Inger Hjelm, business manager, TietoEnator PPS.

PPS takes care of everything from small projects to multi-project management. The method is used today within a large number of companies, administrations and organizations both in Sweden and abroad.

The PPS business concept is "To contribute to strengthening the project maturity of our customers in the Nordic countries by introducing a firmly established project management method and culture of commitment".
