Agile in All Its Glory
Workfront provides a robust Agile solution that even die-hard fans can embrace, while blending it with the convenience and flexibility of enterprise work management
One Big, Happy Family
Agile? Waterfall? Hybrid? With one solution to collaborate and see each other’s work, they can finally get along
Visibility All Around
When teams, PMs and stakeholders can view each other’s work, regardless of their preferred methodology, work gets done better
Mixed methodologies side by side
Your web development team loves Agile. But the infrastructure team you collaborate with needs to see the project in Waterfall. Now Workfront gives you one solution where everyone, regardless of their methodology, can get along and even collaborate on the same projects. If your web development team is using Agile to manage their projects, but your infrastructure team uses Waterfall, their hours and assignments are still synced up together in Workfront. This also makes for one seamless platform where your traditional projects, in Agile or Waterfall, can live in harmony with your inevitable ad hoc requests. Workfront is the only solution on the market today that provides the option to toggle between an Agile and traditional view of projects and tasks.
Full-blown Agile project management
Workfront Agile project management brings all of the benefits of a robust Agile platform without the challenges of trying to communicate with people on other platforms. Nestled within Workfront, you will find a fully formed iteration planning process and familiar storyboard that helps prioritize your work. Or, if you aren’t ready to fully adopt a complete Agile process then you can easily toggle between a traditional and Agile view of projects and team task lists. Workfront is the only solution on the market today that provides the option to toggle between an Agile and traditional view of projects and tasks. This ingenious approach to work management provides complete real-time visibility for project managers, who in the past have only been able to rely on traditional Gantt views of projects.
Instead of wondering what the priority is, you can see your team’s entire backlog in one place in Workfront, so you always know what is currently being worked on and what's next in the queue. Reprioritizing work in your backlog is as easy as dragging items up or down the list.
Unlike tools that make it hard to turn epics and large, complex stories into manageable lists, Workfront makes it easy to turn stories into actionable tasks. You can easily create tasks as stories or breakdown stories that are too cumbersome. Assigning team members to tasks and issues is as easy as dragging and dropping them into the stories you want them to work on.
Workfront includes a storyboard view that any Agile fan will be familiar with. From this view, you can drag and drop team members into stories to assign them the work, color-code your story tiles, break story tiles down into manageable tasks and subtasks, and look at who is assigned to them. Of course, no Agile tool would be complete without pre-selected columns (New, In Progress, Signoff, Complete, etc) or the ability to drag stories from one status column to the next. And to make sure this is an Agile solution you can live with, Workfront also gives managers a real-time burndown chart that shows how work is progressing and which status column each story is currently in. Larger stories are automatically appended when one of its subtasks is assigned to a sprint, providing a quick reference to the main task.
Visibility across teams
Agile-only software makes it difficult to collaborate on work across all teams. Because Workfront lets IT teams, stakeholders, and project managers all work and collaborate in the same software, they can also see how each team’s work fits in the big picture. Project managers can see all project statuses in their own project view, side by side with the rest of the work being done on the project. Your Working On list continues to keep track of all your tasks from your Agile and non-Agile projects. Everyone is on the same page in real time, inside and outside of your team.
