How it can also help implementing Sinnaps in our organization

One of the main issues that many users have mentioned us is how difficult is to implement a new tool in a company.

The Virtual Coach knows this and that is why it also offers different tips that could help you out in that task. We've talked to a great lot of users and this are the tips that we've found help the most. But remember most of the work that it takes to implement a new tool is not done in a computer, so the virtual coach can give you tips but you will have to help him out from the "real" world. 

Remember checking the tiny traffic light every now and then. Just because you are doing ok today doesn't mean tomorrow will be fine. Project management is an ongoing task.

So.... what is the different between the Virtual Coach and the performance panel (EVM)?

As well as assessing you on your PM skills, Sinnaps also allows you to measure your project's performance under objective parameters by using Earned Value Management techniques. 

Both functionalities can help you out a great deal but one is to control the project performance and progress (EVM) and the other (Virtual Coach) is to help you improve your skills as a Project Manager.
