Rewiring Planview to Accelerate On-Strategy Delivery – From the Teams to the Portfolio

Published By Patrick Tickle

Planview named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools

At Planview we know that all organizations pursue the path to becoming a Lean-Agile enterprise differently. We understand this path because we’ve traveled it ourselves. For the past 30 years, Planview was focused on the world of portfolio management. But several years ago, we set out to reinvent ourselves and transform into a company that could quickly pivot to fit the evolving needs of the market and our customers.

Watch the video where I share exciting news about Planview.

As a result, Planview doubled down on our Lean and Agile culture and business, rewiring ourselves to offer a full spectrum of Portfolio and Work Management solutions ­­that are uniquely positioned to help our customers accelerate on-strategy delivery successfully. By bringing together leadership solutions spanning Agile and PPM, Planview is an ideal platform partner for enterprise-class organizations navigating the transformation of work, portfolio management, and the shift to product-centricity. The ability to understand the PPM and Agile sides of a transformation gives a unique, full-picture view of how different parts of an organization transform – from the portfolio, down to the teams. We know where you’ve come from, and we know where you want to go.

This past week we believe our transformation (rewire) efforts and focus were validated by an industry-leading analyst, Gartner.  Planview was named a Leader in the Gartner® 2020 Enterprise Agile Planning Tools Magic Quadrant. We believe this recognition, coupled with our long-held Leader position in the Gartner Project and Portfolio Management Magic Quadrant demonstrates that one thing is true: we know transformation.

According to the 2020 Gartner® Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools*, “Enterprise-class agile development is a natural evolution of project-level Agile to support the demands of large-scale software management. Agile processes are highly accelerated and iterative. The information needs of Agile teams often differ from those of their leadership. This has led to the use of a variety of tools: some for the teams, others for management.”

Planview’s Lean and Agile Delivery Solution enables planning and value delivery from the strategic portfolio level to the Agile team, providing a solution for both leadership and the Agile teams. We believe this is one of the many reasons why Gartner positioned us highest in the Leaders quadrant for Ability to Execute. We are gratified by this analyst recognition, because we have worked hard to pivot and focus on the whole transformation picture.

Here’a what a couple of our partners had to say about our Lean and Agile Delivery Solution, and our designation as a Leader in 2020 Gartner Enterprise Agile Planning Tools Magic Quadrant recently.

“Planview’s new leadership position shows exactly where Agile is going.Enterprise needs for Agile at scale mean that team-level functionality is no longer enough. It has been amazing to see a leading PPM vendor make such a profound and impactful shift from project to product in their own portfolio, and helping others do the same. As a partner, we are honored to be part of the journey and look forward to Planview driving results in the market at this critical time for organizations needing to shift to software and digital innovation.”

Dr. Mik Kersten, Tasktop CEO and best-selling author of Project to Product.

“Working with best-in-class partners like Planview represents our commitment to helping enterprises deliver competitive solutions to its customers in the shortest sustainable lead time. Planview’s experience in the Lean Portfolio Management and enterprise Kanban space is an invaluable asset for organizations looking to effectively connect their portfolio to business strategy.”

Dean Leffingwell, creator of SAFe and cofounder of Scaled Agile, Inc.

“Our goal from the beginning was to build a Lean and Agile Delivery solution that is pragmatic and reflects the realities of Agile transformation. Transformation takes time, and organizations need a partner that can see and understand the whole picture, even the ugly parts.”

Jon Terry, former Planview AgilePlace co-Founder and current Planview Chief Lean-Agile Evangelist.

We believe we can be a transformation partner unlike any other to help you rewire to connect strategy to delivery. We have transformed ourselves, and so can you. We want to be a part of your Agile success. Regardless of where your organization is on its journey to becoming a Lean-Agile enterprise, Planview makes it easy to transform and scale Agile on your terms and timeline. We adapt to your needs – not the other way around.
