A method of managing, developing and executing informtion technology projects, conceived by the Swiss Federal administration. HERMES proposes goal and results oriented project procedures. HERMES structures the development and execution of a project by specifying project results and phases, from which the required project activities and responsibilities are derived.
The five fundamental sub-models of HERMES are:
- Project management
- Quality assurance
- Configuration management
- Risk management
- Project marketing
The Luxemburg government selected HERMES as project methodology in 2005.
