cattaDoc is focused on practical, day-to-day support for project management processes and tasks. It does not aim at implementing a pure PRINCE2® and/or MSP® environment.
Neither is cattaDoc aiming at delivering a lot of document templates like many other PRINCE2 tools and systems.
So, what does cattaDoc give you in project management?
Please note, that cattaDoc is based on an interpretation of PRINCE2 and MSP. The manuals are not geared towards a digital solution, so you have to adapt what they say.
The plan is to develop new database structures for additional management products, starting with product description and quality log - along the lines introduced by the risk register, the issue register and the lessons learned log in version 4.0 of cattaDoc.
This will probably be followed by the work package and the checkpoint report.
These "document templates" will be delivered in separate packages when available.
PRINCE2 (and MSP) seems to be very document-oriented. And many people are very focused on getting PRINCE2 document templates for Microsoft Word. This is very understandable. This is the way we are doing most of our office work today. Not only when managing projects, but in general.
However, if we really want to improve our productivity in office-related work, including when doing projects, I will claim that this is not the way forward. Today, office packages like Microsoft Office (and other similar packages as well) are more of a burden than an aid when we do most of our ordinary office work. They are over-loaded with facilities we never or very seldom use.
It is strange that you have to load a huge thing like Microsoft Word for writing a simple memo - or preparing a checkpoint report. And it does not stop there: You also have to find a unique name for the memo - and a place to store it, so that you can find it again. A lot of things that distract our attention away from the real subject in question. And it takes time, unnecessary time.
cattaDoc offers another approach to office work. An approach, where you work in an environment focusing on and tailored to the job you are actually doing. With cattaDoc: project management. Providing the tools you need - when you need them.
It is still in the beginning with current version of cattaDoc. But this is the vision. Combined with a web-centred approach so you can manage your projects from anywhere, only with a browser and Internet access.
