PM Consulting+ Tools included

Consulting in a carefree package

linkyard consultants bring along the entire project management platform
A doctor would describe our product as follows: "The surgeon brings the entire operating room with him".

Jira and Confluence are among the most widely used tools to manage projects in large enterprises and public organizations. Due to our unique business model of being Jira and Confluence specialists in addition to IT and organizational consulting, we can provide agile and classic project management tools to our consulting clients free of charge. Thus, projects can be initialized, planned, structured and implemented quickly and easily without having to procure systems or onboard external employees with their own clients. From the first day on!
Two people complete the last piece of a puzzle together. A finished house already stands on this last piece. This is to illustrate that our consultants bring the entire project management platform with them.

Free provision of state-of-the-art PM tools

During the term of the mandate, we provide state-of-the-art project management tools based on Jira and Confluence for collaboration at no additional cost. This includes, as agreed, for all internal and external project participants:
