Key Benefits of Extending Jira into a Strategic Portfolio Management Solution with OnePlan

When organizations integrate OnePlan with Jira, they unlock a range of significant benefits that enhance their project management capabilities and transform Jira into a comprehensive Strategic Portfolio Management solution. This section explores three key benefits that arise from leveraging OnePlan alongside Jira.

Strategic Planning (OKRs) in Jira

OKRs have many levels in the enterprise. While all objectives will connect back to enterprise goals, each business unit may have a unique version, based on its customer focus. The same goes for departments within each business unit. Additionally, large organizations are typically a matrix, with additional strategies for teams such as value streams, functional groups and geographical teams which span multiple business units. OnePlan allows you to manage different levels and versions of OKRs. Whether you need a view by business unit, value stream, program or product area, OnePlan supports the many hierarchies and matrices in an enterprise.
