The introduction of the Kameleon project management system has proven a costly process for agricultural economics institute LEI, says employees' council secretary Paul van der Wielen of the Social Sciences Group (SSG).
Laan van Staalduinen, business director at the SSG, confirms the problem. It took the LEI two months to feed all the projects into Kameleon, she explains. The system contained 'bugs', and it required a different way of working. According to Van Staalduinen, the administration has been working better again since April, but Van der Wielen says Kameleon is still not very user-friendly. The system was previously introduced at Wageningen Imares (in 2009), the Animal Sciences Group and Rikilt (2010).
