This site is dedicated to discovering Open Workbench, the free project management tool used by more than 200,000 Project Managers around the world as a replacement for Microsoft Project.
It seems the Open Workbench community cannot be killed, even after the popular and useful web resource (http://openworkbench.org) was taken down.
My personal thanks, as a long-time user of Open Workbench, to itdesign (http://www.itdesign.de/) for picking up the Open Workbench project and continuing its development.
My own experience with Open Workbench started in the mid-2000s when I was working in the methodology team of a large financial services organisation. My team developed the organisation’s bank of delivery processes, which included the Project Planning and Tracking process and a number of standardised Work Breakdown Structure (project schedule) templates. The organisation used the Niku Portfolio Management system, one component of which was Niku Workbench.
When Niku Corporation was acquired by CA and the Workbench product was spun off to become Open Workbench, I consulted with a number of groups and teams within the company on how to architect and structure their project schedules, and how best to deploy them using Open Workbench.
I was also a forum moderator on the openworkbench.org site before it was decommissioned.
