What Brittany Loves About Meisterplan

Meisterplan helps communicate scrum-based planning in a visual way to 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.

Realistic Program Increment and Lean Portfolio Management

With Meisterplan, agile product development teams align their increment plans using simple and universal metrics: timing and dependencies. Product managers actively create a 12-month roadmap to ensure the rapid development of high-value, low-cost features. Taking into consideration capacities results in more reliable plans that can be executed efficiently.

Rest assured: we kept it simple and grounded in reality, making it an ideal solution for scaling Agile.
