Project Success Mentor™ comes complete with over 800 A4 pages of text, figures, forms, agendas, letters and check lists.  Not only does it tell you how to do things, it provides you with over 60 lists of standard project register contents each containing hundreds of pre-defined and pre-categorised items (eg, objectives, assumptions, risks, project products, meetings, critical success factors, success criteria, etc).  Use them as templates to kick-start your own project's registers or just to see how to structure your project's registers (eg, how to structure a Risk Breakdown Structure (RBS), a Product Breakdown Structure (PBS), a Meeting Breakdown Structure (MBS), an Objective Breakdown Structure (OBS), etc).
The texts within Project Success Mentor™ are cross-referenced and integrated.  This means that you can drill-down on key terms to view their definition and description.
Project Success Mentor  also features:

• Pre-sales activities performed by enterprises that perform projects on behalf of external customers
• Project Sponsorship Body of Knowledge
• Use/complete, export/save and print handy Check Lists
so that you will feel right at home using it.
Achieving project success is much more than "to scope, on time and within budget".
Project Success Mentor™ is not about keeping your projects on track, but getting them on track in the first place.

Decades of knowledge bundled into a very accessible format Tools, templates, checklists, processes - this app contains a wealth of information to help set up projects for success. Many aspects yet to be activated in future releases, but what's here already can save you lots of frustration. The ability to switch seamlessly between PMBOK and Prince2 terminology is a neat feature.
