Enterprise functionality that’s easy to use and reinforces Agile practices. That’s why thousands of Agile software development teams around the world have adopted ScrumWorks Pro.
Get an enterprise level view across all projects, from a single dashboard. Compare KPIs, evaluate resource allocation and create themes to manage features that cross multiple product lines.
Get control of complex release plans with many product components that have different development and release schedules.
Themes are a powerful feature for providing greater visibility and insight across all of your Agile projects and programs. Themes can be used for viewing large amounts of data in different ways, or for doing things like defining multiple backlogs within a larger backlog.
Improve your ability to respond quickly to changes in release targets, resources or priorities through “what-if” scenarios.
Use velocity reports to improve effort estimation and optimize resource allocation across the organization.
Gain complete understanding and manage agile projects at the program, product, release and sprint levels.
Ensure that your team is working on the most important business priorities by grouping tasks, stories and backlog items into Epics.
Focus team effort on top priority items by ranking all product backlog items by business value to maximize project ROI.
Control large scale Agile development projects by grouping related product backlog items and epics into Themes. Add as many Themes to a Backlog Item as desired for better visibility and insight.
Custom status fields and workflow for work items can be defined, giving teams more granular visibility into project status all the way from requirement through acceptance/done.
ScrumWorks Pro’s Agile reports help teams release on time, within budget and with higher quality. Use standard or custom reports to track and report on progress in the way that’s best for your team.
Take the guesswork out of release planning. The Program Release Planner view presents the high-level status of the entire program release. Users can track the progress of component products within a single view and forecast release dates for programs based on empirical data.
The “Release Burn-Up” Report shows the relationship between work completed per iteration and project scope change for more accurate release planning.
The burndown report plots a trendline based on the rate at which work is being added or removed and calculates a release date based upon that. Burndown reports can be viewed by date, sprint, product or program.
The Release Forecast provides a completion date based on the velocity and scope change trend lines for better estimation and scenario planning (Scope Change Projections). Like the Release Burndown it can aggregate data across multiple releases and be filtered by themes and release as well as date ranges.
The Epic Progress Report offers a view of relative progress across individual epics within a release, revealing where a manager might adjust scope or shift resources. It is also useful for setting soft limits and revealing “uncategorized” work being scheduled and performed during a release cycle.
The “Lean Cycle Time Report” shows how long it takes for individual backlog items to move from the initial requirement phase to completion. This chart measures “agility” by showing the relationship between “not started” to “in progress” to “done” work, indicating the average time work resides in each state.
Create highly customized views and reports to track your progress in the way that is best for your team. Web reports do not require a ScrumWorks Pro license to view – so you can share them with anybody.
Archive program releases, product and program themes, and even entire programs. Archived release and themes are hidden from view within all reports.
Increase transparency, collaboration and accountability by providing full visibility to the tasks in the current sprint, release and product plan to all team members.
ScrumMasters and project leads can stay on top of progress of backlog items and tasks during iteration cycles.
Minimize overhead of project management tasks by customizing the My Task view. Easily track estimated number of hours remaining and signal when your tasks are complete.
Identify potential bottlenecks before they happen by tracking the time remaining for tasks, backlog items, epics and even themes. Over time, improve planning by evaluating the accuracy of effort estimation.
Intuitive kanban interface and kanban board lets users drag-and-drop stories between kanban lanes.
Customize the kanban workflow by adding arbitrary lanes to match your team's needs.
Work-in-Progress limits may be established to signal the over subscription of any one kanban lane. "Done" items can now be hidden on the Kanban board, making it easier to focus on work that still needs to be completed.
Gain insight into bottlenecks by using lean metrics like cycle time to completion of stories
Scrumworks Pro’s ease-of-adoption reinforces best-in-class Agile practices across teams so you see early benefits from your efforts.
Enable best practice adoption by comparing KPIs across projects; create and manage cross project themes across teams, releases and programs.
Use ScrumWorks Pro to scale Agile across distributed teams, while leveraging CollabNet’s leading Agile training and coaching services.
Maintain security with low administration through easy integration to LDAP. Optionally use ScrumWorks Pro directory services to authenticate users for an easy-to-implement configuration.
Use default or custom roles to specify access privileges in a project or across projects. Additionally, optionally configure ScrumWorks Pro to enforce strong passwords.
Create templates that can be used at the Product level as starting points for the creation of actual Product Roles, accessible to all Products.
With data import/export, utilize the reporting or data analysis tool of your choice, including Microsoft Excel®.
For those preferring a physical rather than electronic taskboard, print backlog items out to cards.
The Change Log now displays information beyond 60 days. You may view all changes across a selected date range or export data to spreadsheet applications. See the Change Log documentation for details.
Keep team members informed automatically, with automated immediate email notifications of milestones and events.
Link Jira or Bugzilla into ScrumWorks Pro, to streamline backlog management.
