Bridge the Gap Between Agile Teams

What You Will Learn in this White Paper

Agile work brings many benefits: greater focus on the top priorities, increased productivity and a better ability to adapt and react to changes. While more and more organizations are adopting Agile methodology, very few companies are 100% Agile. Senior management typically understands traditional project management. However, adding Agile to the mix of project methodologies can create a problem.  Oftentimes, management thinks in terms of projects with rigid deadlines, scope and requirements, but the Agile method is more flexible. Agile teams work through a backlog of topics without set completion dates. When one topic is completed, they move on to the next highest priority topic in the backlog. This way of working leads to the question of how does upper management or the portfolio decision-makers include Agile work in the overall plans for their organization and how do they prioritize Agile work in conjunction with traditional projects? In this white paper, you will learn how to bring management and Agile teams together to make better plans and execute more projects.

What Matthias Loves About Meisterplan

Before implementing Meisterplan, our resource management was a game of Excel bingo: timeconsuming, cumbersome, and error prone.

What Darrin Loves About Meisterplan

There is no other product that does what Meisterplan does in terms of portfolio management and resource management without unessential extra features. If there were another product that does what Meisterplan does, I would have found it, because I tried them all.

What Christopher Loves About Meisterplan

We successfully run 400 projects and 20 programs in our portfolio with Meisterplan. Although many have tried, you can’t manage that many programs and resources in Excel templates. But you can with Meisterplan.
