With Advanced Roadmaps, your team can see exact durations of when tasks within a project are in progress and where in which they fall among other tasks. This not only helps team members specifically involved with a project, but it can help leadership track progress with ease across the entire organization. Even more importantly, your organization can communicate development on projects for customers with accuracy and ease.
Another key aspect of plans with Advanced Roadmaps is how it helps your team manage any additional, unforeseen tasks or priority changes. When listing the items needed to complete a project, it can be easy to find new tasks and assignments to have to tack on while running through the steps. Thus, this can lead to deadline rearranging and re-planning. Your team can learn how to better control and adjust the timeline of a project even when surprises show up with the Gantt chart display of Advanced Cloud Roadmaps.
Advanced Roadmaps is for teams who are pursuing a transparent, easy-to-visualize plan tracking progress. By implementing this Atlassian tool into your organization, this relieves your teams individually of the chaos in trying to envision the length and progress of each project as Roadmaps will simplify this. In addition, this feature will allow other teams not directly involved with certain projects or initiatives to understand and be aware of progress. Perhaps, a team member from the HR team is supporting a Marketing project. The lead of the HR team can follow along on that project to understand his or her employee’s schedule and when new or more HR tasks can be assigned to that employee, thus streamlining that visualization and communication process for both teams involved.
Increasing visibility of deadlines not only improves the ways teams work and communicate, but Advanced Roadmaps can help teams additionally by making important decisions on projects and initiatives. For instance, if a subtask must be added to a specific project, this may delay the process of the remaining work for it. With all tasks listed and scheduled on your plan within Advanced Roadmaps, your team can work at high velocity to make decisions on what best route to take and what changes may need to occur to complete the work on or near the same deadline.
Think About the What-Ifs
Another benefit that stems from Advanced Roadmaps tacks on to the planning and decision-making process for projects and initiatives. Tasks within a project are laid out in a Gantt chart form, easily assisting teams with tracking progress. However, say a project is running smoothly enough to finish early. The team in control of that project can then analyze that plan and consider taking the extra mile with it. Roadmaps simplify the prediction process of adding tasks or time on current tasks to a project and easily see what that does to the timeline of the project. As your team’s boards are designed and purposed to show an exact, up-to-date representation of work progress, Advanced Roadmaps allow your teams to see a visualized plan where items of work can be changed to easily predict how long a project or larger initiative may take.
In short, Advanced Roadmaps is another representation of what Atlassian does best: better ways of working at an accelerated pace. By increasing your organization's and team’s levels of visibility and decision-making, your organization’s initiatives can be delivered faster, communicated better, and finished with flying colors.
