Pattern name: Plan implementation
About this Pattern
The Project Management Office (PMO) often uses a PPM tool, such as Planview or CA PPM, to help manage organizational initiatives and investments in the application portfolio. In recent years, product-centric organizations have adopted roadmapping tools for their strategic planning.
At the same time, the product and development teams tasked with executing against these high-level business themes manage their work in Agile planning tools.
This integration pattern mirrors the high-level planning items managed in the PPM or roadmapping tool directly into the Agile planning tool, from which they can be broken down into epics, user stories, tasks and sub-tasks.
Both parties benefit from a seamless flow of work from the ideation teams to the implementation teams.
In addition, as work progresses, updates flow back upstream, providing the portfolio managers with visibility on execution and completion against the plan.
