Planning Support for Mid-Sized Enterprises at 2018 SAFe Summit
Integration with Net Objectives’ PI planning support capabilities will automate manual processes, enabling collaboration during enterprise planning for Targetprocess customers
BUFFALO, N.Y. — October 2, 2018—Targetprocess, a provider of a visual management platform for Agile teams and organizations, will demonstrate its support for enterprise Program Increment (PI) planning at the 2018 SAFe Summit by Scaled Agile, October 1-5 in Washington, DC.
Targetprocess has integrated Net Objectives’ PI planning capabilities into its solution. The PI planning feature automates processes to enable better collaboration in planning. This removes the knowledge gaps often created in large teams by traditional planning methods, which often result in strategic leaders failing to pass along pertinent information, leaving middle managers to lead teams to execute without a shared knowledge of a company’s goals. Providing unparalleled ease of use, this support for PI planning improves on manual and other software-led methods as the first to enable new Lean-Agile capabilities. These capabilities efficiently organize and align large groups of people, and provide the clearest views into a program’s dependencies and related complexities and risks.
“We are proud to add PI planning support to our platform’s unrivaled customization capabilities to address the needs of mid-sized enterprises,” said Andrey Mihailenko, co-founder of Targetprocess. “By supporting our customers’ recurring, sophisticated planning needs through dramatic improvement on age-old methods, we help them leverage the newest agile capabilities to not just scale, but evolve as they grow, with full visibility throughout their entire organizations.”
“The planning event is one of the best parts of Agile, but it’s frenetic and cumbersome,” said Al Shalloway, CEO of Net Objectives. “PI planning with a program board builder saves customers time by automating processes and enabling collaboration in a way that isn’t possible without automation. We found we’re able to save a business thousands of dollars per event while improving processes for everyone involved.”
The Targetprocess platform offers full visibility into the value stream of a program, portfolio or enterprise. Its new PI planning solution further enables this for any planning event by allowing a team’s participants a view into the goals of their program, while giving management a view into the challenges and tasks of each team. This clarity allows for more effective and efficient planning.
