PLANTA Hybrid

Clas­si­cal and Agile
Pro­ject Management

Mas­ter Any Project
Situa­ti­on Flexibly

Enjoy the advan­ta­ges of both PM worlds!

The PLANTA Hybrid enab­les you to use agi­le and clas­si­cal pro­ject plan­ning methods in one inte­gra­ted sys­tem. Thanks to syn­chro­niz­a­ti­on via web­ser­vices, data is always cur­rent in both inter­con­nec­ted systems.

It can be used for ent­i­re pro­jects and for indi­vi­du­al pro­ject pha­ses. Pos­si­ble are­as of use: 

  • Pro­duct deve­lo­p­ment (not only soft­ware development)
  • in the ser­vice area (e.g. hotline)
  • in mar­ke­ting campaigns
  • in the imple­men­ta­ti­on of new pro­ces­ses in the company
  • in IT and orga­niz­a­tio­nal projects

PLANTA Hybrid: PLANTA pro­ject com­bi­ned with agi­le systems

PLANTA pro­ject enab­les you to car­ry out clas­si­cal pro­ject manage­ment with detail­ed pro­ject plan­ning and to con­trol bud­get, resour­ce uti­liz­a­ti­on, and pro­ject pro­gress as well as to report agi­le­ly plan­ned projects.

With PLANTA pul­se you can car­ry out agi­le plan­ning of sub­pro­jects or pro­jects wit­hin the pro­ject teams. Todo items can be admi­nis­te­red fle­xi­b­ly and hours can be repor­ted to them.

PLANTA Jira link

Sin­ce some are­as of use call for the con­nec­tion to fur­ther agi­le sys­tems like, e.g., Jira, or to other sys­tems, PLANTA has desi­gned an inter­face to Jira for this par­ti­cu­lar area of use: PLANTA Jira link is a PLANTA Add-On, based on the Web inter­faces with PLANTA link.

The PLANTA hybrid pro­vi­des you with an inte­gra­ted sys­tem which allows you to con­nect the clas­si­cal PLANTA pro­ject sys­tem with the agi­le PLANTA pul­se and/or with the agi­le Jira sys­tem. Wha­te­ver opti­on you may go for, syn­chro­ni­sa­ti­on via web­ser­vices always pro­vi­des you with cur­rent data both in the agi­le and in the clas­si­cal system.

Inte­gra­ted time recording
  • Users can record and get an over­view of their working time.
  • When using it as a hybrid sys­tem, repor­ted hours from PLANTA pul­se are always up-to-date in the respec­ti­ve PLANTA pro­ject task thanks to synchronization.
The func­tio­n­al inter­face for effec­ti­ve pro­ject management
  • Take bene­fit of the advan­ta­ges of clas­si­cal pro­ject management:
    Plan pro­jects inclu­ding resour­ce manage­ment and bud­get admi­nis­tra­ti­on in PLANTA pro­ject and then syn­chro­ni­ze with PLANTA pulse
  • Intui­ti­ve detail plan­ning of indi­vi­du­al tasks:
    Tasks are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly crea­ted as boards which add resour­ces as mem­bers, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and allo­ca­ti­on of respon­si­bi­li­ty is done direct­ly in the board
  • Fle­xi­bi­li­ty in the team:
    All employees always have an eye on the cur­rent pro­gress and can record their working hours direct­ly in PLANTA pulse
  • Fewer work sta­ges for more productivity:
    Immedia­te­ly returns the working hours recor­ded in PLANTA pul­se to PLANTA project

Sprint Plan­ning Case Studies

Deve­lo­p­ment of a new web­site with PLANTA pro­ject and PLANTA pul­se

A new web­site is to be deve­lo­ped. To assu­re an opti­mal admi­nis­tra­ti­on of sche­du­les, resour­ces, and bud­get, the pro­ject mana­ger uses PLANTA pro­ject for pro­ject plan­ning. For the detail­ed plan­ning of the indi­vi­du­al sprints, the team of deve­lo­pers reli­es on PLANTA pul­se in order to be able to mana­ge all todo items agi­le­ly and intui­tively in the actu­al work process.

  • Pro­ject mana­ger: plan­ning of the “New web­site” pro­ject in PLANTA pro­ject
  • Syn­chro­niz­a­ti­on of the sprint tasks with PLANTA pul­se
  • Scope trans­fer to the team of deve­lo­pers: : Thanks to the pre­de­fi­ned board-lay­out („Back­log“, „To be done“ etc.) and to the auto­ma­tic copy­ing of the resour­ces to PLANTA pul­se, they can immedia­te­ly get started.
  • Team of deve­lo­pers: self-orga­ni­zed plan­ning and imple­men­ta­ti­on in PLANTA pul­se
    • The team of deve­lo­pers dis­cus­ses what is to be rea­li­zed in the first sprint. The team lea­der crea­tes the first cards in PLANTA pul­se, assigns todo items and defi­nes deadlines.
    • All team mem­bers can moni­tor the acti­vi­ties they have been plan­ned for.
    • Thanks to indi­vi­du­al labels, prio­ri­ties are allo­ca­ted so that the team mem­bers can orga­ni­ze their work accord­ing to the requirements
    • The team com­mu­ni­ca­tes via the board: Notes and docu­ments are added to the cards and are avail­ab­le to all members.
    • The team uses the board for uncom­pli­ca­ted time record­ing: Working hours are ent­e­red direct­ly on the todo item cards.
    • The pro­ject mana­ger can trace back the pro­gress in PLANTA pro­ject, sin­ce the hours recor­ded on the board are immedia­te­ly applied.
  • Moni­to­ring and ana­ly­sis of the pro­ject and its indi­vi­du­al tasks in terms of defi­ned time and cos­ts by the pro­ject mana­ger in PLANTA pro­ject
Result
  • A suc­cess­ful pro­ject which com­bi­nes the strengths of both the clas­si­cal and the agi­le method.
  • Thanks to quick feed­back by the cus­to­mer and the own team, inter­me­dia­te results can be adjus­ted to new requi­re­ments (adap­ti­ve plan­ning) and the final result can turn out to be a sub­stan­ti­al impro­ve­ment to the initi­al plan­ning which is some­ti­mes only sub­stan­tia­ted in the cour­se of the deve­lo­p­ment cycles (VUCA World).
Hybrid pro­ject manage­ment can be used varia­b­ly in the company:

Accord­ing to indi­vi­du­al requi­re­ments for the respec­ti­ve pro­ject, agi­le and clas­si­cal ele­ments can be used prag­ma­ti­cal­ly, allowing you to find the best hybrid vari­ant for the ent­i­re pro­ject accord­ing to its respec­ti­ve size and complexity.
