Print | Close Project Perspectives

The clear structure of HERMES with its roles, tasks, and outcomes allows various project perspectives to be considered.

  • The partner perspective
  • The chronological perspective
  • The hierarchical perspective 

The Partner Perspective

A role is assigned to one or more project partners (user, developer, and/or operator). The owner of a role represents the perspective of his or her organization with regard to the project.

Based on the assignment of roles to partners, all partners can see:

  • What roles they typically have to fulfill
  • What tasks they are responsible for
  • What outcomes they are responsible for and what outcomes they are participating in

The Hierarchical Perspective

The hierarchical levels regulate the responsibilities within a project. They support compliance with governance.

The hierarchical perspective shows:

  • What decision tasks are located at what level
  • What outcomes need to be achieved at what level
  • What levels the roles are assigned to

The Chronological Perspective

The phase model structures the lifecycle of a project and lays the foundation for a common understanding by everyone involved in the project of all aspects of the project flow.

The chronological perspective shows:

  • What tasks and outcomes are handled in which phase
  • What milestones are located in which phase and what decisions need to be made at that stage
