Project Slicer is a collaborative post-mortem platform for
managing and dashboarding project quality information. Project
managers can assess quantitative attributes such as time
variance and profitability, and qualitative criteria like user
satisfaction, stakeholder satisfaction and reusability.
In addition to tracking statistics such as time variance and
profitability, Project Slicer also solicits feedback from team
members to answer the three most critical post-launch project
management questions: 1. What worked? 2. What didn't work?
3. What can we do to improve in the future?
