We are pleased to announce that several Karakun AG employees passed the HERMES 5.1 Foundation certification exam with flying colors in July 2021.

HERMES is a project management method developed by the Swiss Federal Administration. HERMES supports the control, management, and execution of projects of the most varied nature and complexity in information technology, the development of services and products, or the adaptation of business organizations. HERMES has a clear, easy-to-understand method structure and is easily expandable due to its modularity. With the latest extensions, agile projects are now also supported.

HERMES has already been used successfully in a large number of projects at a cantonal and communal level. But also at educational institutions and companies from the private sector, HERMES is well-suited. Knowledge of the HERMES project management method is now a mandatory requirement for federal and cantonal projects.

Our employees completed a two-day course at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) in Basel. The participants learned the base elements of the HERMES methodology (scenarios, modules, roles, tasks, results) and their interrelationships in small groups. In various exercises and with the help of sample documents, the knowledge just acquired could then be continuously consolidated. The participants also welcomed the wide range of dynamically generated test questions. For self-studies, the FHNW provided sample exams from previous years via their online portal.

At the end of the second day, the exam was taken on-site by a representative of TÜV Süd AG.

With our new HERMES experts, we are happy to be best prepared for future projects at a cantonal and federal level.
