The main objective of this project was to collect the data and provide a solution to the problems faced by a huge organizations, which holds the data of many diverse fields. The challenge here was to generate an enterprise level dashboard to illustrate the number of job applications for a particular domain and the applicants. Top level management evaluates or analyzes the functioning and progress of it, with respect to the Job portal developed with Sugar CRM.

Agile methodology supports a rapid, iterative, lean development style and is better result driven. The team focused on the decision driven rather than data driven. The team also concentrated on the necessities of the decisions to be made, rather than enclosing all existing data. While following this, organization totally relied on agile development and business opportunity management. This project can be useful for the executives of the company to monitor the recruitment processes effectively.

Lean Management principles have been strongly monitored while developing this project.


This Project would not have been possible without the kind support and help of many individuals and organizations. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of them.

I am highly indebted to Dr. Ben Baliga and Dr. Hiral Shah for their guidance and constant supervision during my study at St. Cloud State University. I would also like to thank Prof. Gary Nierengarten and Dr. Balsy Kasi for reviewing my project.
