Taskstreamer process for Product Owner

How it works for Product Owners

01

Define Value Bucket Model

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

Ideation

Your custom ideation workflow lets you define ideas, have your organization vote on them and convert to Epics for all the involved teams

Ideation uses a 11 step discovery flow with persona's, problem definition, impact analysis, value statement, hypothesis, expected outcome, metrics, mission or goal alignment, evidence, intert and expected size of work. Each of these factor can be used to prepare your work and lets you work on the right ideas in tune with your Stakeholders.

03

Create Epic Backlog

Within a value group (or department) teams work together and share their Epic Backlog. It shows all the Epics, the teams working on them, what the team dependencies are, their value, effort and priority in a single overview.

Before working on an Epic it should be approved by all necessary teams so everybody is on board.

What to focus on?
Epics in progress to make sure they are on track and unapproved Epics to prepare the next big thing.

Execute delivery

Execution is often done with Stories through Sprints (Scrum) using a Kanban board.

Taskstreamer offers you a Story Backlog linked to the Epic Backlog so you know what to refine first. Each team can set its own Sprint cadence and run Sprints using their own Kanban board. Taskstreamer keeps track of your velocity and calculates your expected number of Story Points per Sprint through our prediction engine.

"But we already use Jira"
No worries, you can synchronize the Epics, Stories and Tasks with Jira, so you could keep your sprints and board in Jira and use Taskstreamer for Strategy and Team alignment. Or sync to Taskstreamer once and continue there .

Update progress

Each time you have new information on progress of Epics you can update it through a simple form. Just set the state and with each state a number of additional options appear.

If the update affects the timeline, the continuous roadmap is updated instantly.

Communicate roadmap

You can keep your Stakeholders up to date with our Continuous Roadmap. We call it continuous since it is updated in real-time with every information update that is made.

Whenever a team is faster (or slower) than expected, new value is discovered, dependencies or strategies change, our algorithm calculates the new optimal sequence in which to do things. Every team can be updated for their next sprint to achieve maximum value.

Our roadmap is an actual view on data, not some Gantt chart someone tries to make fit through drag and drop features.

Understand strategy

As a Product Owner you are responsible to deliver value for your organization (probably through delivering value to your customers) based on the strategic outlook of your organization.

But are you aware of what the details of the Strategy are? And how that should influence the work you have done? Or how it affects priorities?

Management can set their Strategy in Taskstreamer through OGSM, OKR and/or Themes that can be linked to your Epics and Value Bucket Model. They work together nicely and keep everyone aligned.
