What Brittany Loves About Meisterplan

Meisterplan for Jira is a great integration tool if you are using Sprint based workflows in Jira. The integration further assists Meisterplan in communicating the task work in a visual way for executive management. It keeps a pulse on the work getting completed (and not completed) across the enterprise while showing the hierarchal priority and context to other projects and programs. This is helping us get more rigor around estimates and time tracking across multiple workflows.

What Adrian Loves About Meisterplan

Very usable for enterprises with large number of projects to prioritize. It was designed to help PMOs and resource managers find the best fit in the project portfolio. It is easy to use and easy to implement. The user interface is really simple but offers useful functionalities for project and resource planning and prioritization.
