How it works for Managers

01

Define Value Bucket Model

Use the Value Bucket Model to be able to prioritize your work for value. The model is defined by Management together with Product Owners based on your KPI's.

Creating value model is done in 3 steps: set, normalize and weigh your value parameters.

Taskstreamer translates the actual value for Epics to a score for you for easy communication with Stakeholders.

02

Define your Strategy

Strategy gives direction to your company. But often the link to execution is missing or has too little influence to actual steer.

Taskstreamer allows you to use OGSM or OKR as formal strategy methods and Themes to define strategic programs.

Link Strategy to Epics

Strategy is not set in stone and your preferences will change over time. It is important that execution can be influenced in their prioritization.

By linking Epics to Strategy, you can see when work is expected to be done based on the Continues Roadmaps that Taskstreamer generates. Everytime an Epic is updated, its entire impact will be shown.

So now you know where to act.

Run what-if scenarios

So you think a change in priorities is necessary. Usually when an Epic gets a higher priority to be delivered sooner, other Epics will have to wait. Do you know which ones? Probably not. Is that acceptable to you? Do you want to know what the effects are of your decision beforehand?

Taskstreamer lets you run what-if scenarios with different Strategy and Theme weights, a change in Value Bucket Model, team capacity or to check the impact of new (not yet approved) Epics. We will show you what the changes in priority will be and how that affects expected delivery windows.

05

Tweak priorities

For each Strategy or Theme you get a Weight setting. The impact of this setting is defined in your Value Bucket Model and gives the Epics linked to it, an extra score. This score is not related to effort, so the change is directly focussed to the final priority.

Once set the Epic Backlog the Product Owners work from, is re-ordered and the Continuous Roadmap re-calculated. Everybody knows that priorities have changed and how.
