Modules are reusable building blocks for creating scenarios. A scenario consists of several modules. A module can be used in several scenarios.

A module contains the thematically related tasks and outcomes, as well as the roles involved.

Figure 20 shows the modules in the context of the service/product scenario.

HERMES contains all modules required for standard scenarios. In addition, users can create organization-specific modules to form individual scenarios.

Module overview

Standard modules

The following modules are available as standard with HERMES 5. The table lists all modules according to their context and shows in which project phases they can occur.

Customized modules

Aside from the modules available as standard, it is possible to develop your own subject-specific modules and integrate them into a scenario. This is supported by HERMES online. Examples of subject-specific, customized modules that can be developed by users:

  1. Marketing
  2. Communication
  3. Personnel development
  4. Training
  5. Strategy development
  6. Business administration deployment

Module descriptions

Explanation regarding the module description

For each module, there is a module description that is always structured in the same way:

  1. What has to be done
    Description of the module tasks in the overall context of the module
  2. Tasks
    Tabular division of tasks according to project phases, with the decision tasks highlighted in pink
  3. Outcomes
    Tabular breakdown of the outcomes according to project phases, whereby the outcomes documenting the decision are highlighted in pink

Section 5.3 provides detailed information on the various tasks, and section 6.3 does the same for the outcomes.
