Portfolio Manager | Targetprocess for Enterprise Agility

As a Portfolio Manager, you are, amongst other things, interested in progress, forecasts and quality. You want to see how much and which current or upcoming work is helping you to improve or expand your business.

Using Targetprocess alone will not improve your business, but it will help you enhance transparency, increase flow, and help your teams or team-of-teams to plan, follow, measure, and improve the processes and products that make up your business.

Let’s have a run through the features we think will make you happy!

Focus and Alignment

Goal systems like OKRs are about aligning people with commonly shared goals. We support different goal systems and can also connect them in a meaningful way so we connect product development work and its output with the intended outcomes of the business. We support these goal systems:

  • OKR (Objectives and Key Results)

Connect OKRs to Work Items and Scrum Iteration Goals & SAFe PI Objectives

Сonfigure the iterations for all teams associated with the selected products.

  • Support for Sprint Goals

In Targetprocess you can combine Sprint Goals with SAFe PI Objectives and Scrum.

  • Connecting the work and its progress to any of the above goals or objectives

Process and Quality Transparency with Reports and Metrics

A big part of being Agile is to continuously improve based on real data or feedback. This means we need access to this data and are able to make this data and feedback easily visible (from different angles and perspectives). Only when you can see all the data and filter it to see what's hampering flow, quality, or time-to-market, can you start to improve in a meaningful way.

Targetprocess is a work management tool with great visualization and collaboration capabilities. Ask us for a demo of any of the following features and you’ll see what we mean:

  • Views, view types and view customizations

Visualize Epics, Features or other work items on a Roadmap

  • Integrations with other team-level work management or pipeline (devops) tools

Targetprocess can be seamlessly integrated with Azure DevOps or Jira Software to solve the challenges of enterprise planning and tracking based on the SAFe framework.

See, Plan, and Follow the Work

Especially in software development, seeing the work and its progress is very hard. It’s all hidden behind a screen on a server somewhere. Targetprocess allows you to visualize the work from high-level to all of its details, follow it’s current progress in your process-chain and plan, prioritize, and forecast upcoming work. We allow you to tailor the amount and details of the data for any group or individual so you won’t get lost in the details, but are still able to see them if needed.

    It is really so flexible that we can nearly model and effectively use in each workflow we need. New departments request me from time to time to show them “that tool you have with nice cards ☺

    Jorge Rivero Sanchez
    Innovation Director
  • I love how adaptable and flexible Targetprocess is. It meets the various needs of so many different departments within our organization. We manage all of our IT, creative and legal workflow through Targetprocess. It’s helped create a centralized location for our cross-department needs – as well as providing a history of our work.

    Katie MacCabe
    Assistant Director
  • I used Targetprocess at some very large multi-team multi-program clients and had a consistently good experience.
    I’ve got a lot of experience of Jira, Rally, PivotalTracker, Trello, Mingle and open source agile lifecycle management tools. I like Targetprocess better – it covers a lot more ground, the information architecture is really consistent, it’s solid as a rock and fast too. Best of breed.
