Workfront has announced that its new Agile capabilities allow project managers to step away from the decades-old Gantt chart as their sole visualization tool when planning projects. The new Agile view allows project managers the ability to see projects in real time, giving them even more confidence to set expectations of project teams to deliver higher quality content faster than before.
In addition to taking projects out of Gantt-only view, the Workfront Agile capabilities provides an alternative to the traditional project management processes by offering an Agile methodology that can be easily adopted by enterprise teams at their own pace.
The new Workfront Agile capabilities for IT and marketing teams include:
* New burndown charts dynamically shift to account for quick progress updates, both at the team and project level
* Interactive workboards allow users to see work move from “in planning” to “in progress” to “complete”, while displaying the number of stories and points completed as those tasks progress and ultimately reporting the productivity of the team
* Dropdown navigation menus provide complete visibility and transparency at the team and project level, across multiple teams, breaking previous silos of information
* Dropdown menus allow users to toggle between Agile and traditional views so teams can easily adapt and transition to Agile practices
