Portfolio visibility and reporting for projects result in better decision making, results, and ROI increasing business agility.
Keep agile work aligned to business strategyAgile portfolio planning starts with value-based scoring to identify the highest value work and re-evaluating what the highest value work is after every sprint cycle. Utilize intuitive dashboards to align agile work to strategic objectives and plan accurate releases. Keep your portfolio strategically in range with:
- Status and metric reporting to ensure teams are approving and working on the right initiatives
- Work request initiation that will develop a process for managing request intake and create a pre-backlog
- Scoring and prioritization of requests to keep approved work aligned with business objectives
- Approval workflows promote value based decision making and instill appropriate stage gates
Quickly answer “What’s the status of the project?”Always know where your projects stand with portfolio visibility and reporting. With configurable dashboards and reports for project managers, PMOs, and executive management, every stakeholder has visibility into project status. Agile management of projects allows for changes without taking the portfolio off course. Promote portfolio visibility for:
- Product release planning and reporting – establish predictability into releases
- Roadmap planning and insight – insight into future releases
- Active work reporting across portfolios – identify red flags quickly and course correct as needed
- Cost management – understand how budgets are being allocated and ensure alignment
Have enough people to meet corporate objectives?Resourcing is littered with variables and unpredictable changes. Get insight into resource capacity and demand, real time utilization reports, and what-if scenario analysis for your projects. Adapt to resource changes quickly with role-based resource management. Identify gaps and account for real life scenarios with modeling tools. Understand and communicate resource needs for projects with:
- Labor cost allocation by team, project, product, or epic and by active work type – new features or maintenance
- Resource assignment reporting based on role, teams, projects, or products
- Resource capacity constraint analysis across all active work
- Resource demand constraint analysis across future planned work
Working with an agile team that uses a different application?No problem! Integrate with existing applications to minimize disruption of workflow and preserve data integrity for project and development managers. Planview’s Integration-as-Service for applications such as JIRA, homegrown, or custom systems supports the advantages of agile for your organization. Configurable dashboards and reports create a customized view of your organization to help close the gap between agile teams and management. Scalable for any size organization, integrations provide a smooth transition to agile portfolio management.
