Product Owner | Targetprocess for Enterprise Agility

As a product owner, you care about maximizing the value your product brings to its users, aligning teams on implementing in order and together, and informing stakeholders about the progress and more. You probably want to keep a product backlog, product roadmap, gather ideas and other feedback from stakeholders and users, plan and keep track of the released version of your product and much more.

As Targetprocess is a product company and we use Targetprocess to develop Targetprocess, we tend to think we understand what you need. We have a lot of features that you’ll love with even more coming soon. Let’s have a run through the features we think will make you happy.

Goal Management

Goal systems are about aligning people on common shared goals. It's not about telling people how they should reach a goal. We support different goal systems and can also connect them together in a meaningful way, so we connect product development work and its outputs with the intended outcomes of the business. We support these goal systems:

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

  • Support for Sprint Goals

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

Product Management

Product management is about making choices because unfortunately time and money are limited. In order to make the best choice out of all the possible improvements and enhancements at any given time, we need clarity and information. Targetprocess helps to order the chaos, make informed decisions, and share and communicate them using the following SAFe features:

  • Product Entity with states (extensive product hierarchy coming soon)

Idea and Issue Management

If we’re close to the users of our products, we can use gemba walks to see how the product is used and get ideas on what to add or improve. It’s a nice idea and definitely works, but we can’t be with every user at their location all the time. Therefore, digital solutions for gathering ideas and feedback are needed. The following features of Targetprocess help with this:

  • Service Desk to connect with stakeholders (no extra Targetprocess licences needed)

  • Gather ideas and/or feedback and capture the discussion or details

Work-Item and Backlog Management

Agile product development is making small incremental changes and gathering feedback from them quickly, so we learn before the next change. When we break the work down into small pieces, we need to keep an overview of all work and its higher-level work or objectives, its state and progress, and view the work from different perspectives. It’s about following the work, not the people. Here’s what Targetprocess brings to the table:

  • Story Mapping

  • Pre-Sprint or Pre-Program Increment workflow states

  • A smart product backlog that holds Epics, Features, User Stories and Bugs so you can order work across work-items types.

  • Support for Multiple ways to Prioritize or Order you backlog

  • 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.
