Build Element-Netural Portfolio & Work Hierarchies

The OnePlan Portfolio hierarchy can vary depending on the specific needs and goals of the organization, but it typically includes at least three levels:

Strategic level: This is the highest level of the hierarchy, and it includes projects that are aligned with the overall strategy and vision of the organization. These projects are typically long-term in nature and have a significant impact on the organization.

Tactical level: This is the middle level of the hierarchy, and it includes projects that are designed to support the strategic objectives of the organization. These projects are typically medium-term in nature and have a more focused impact on specific areas of the organization.

Operational level: This is the lowest level of the hierarchy, and it includes projects that are focused on day-to-day operations and maintenance. These projects are typically short-term in nature and have a more narrow impact on the organization.•Focus on the highest prioritized portfolios best aligned to support key decisions.

  • Evaluate how newly proposed portfolios align to strategic themes and business objectives of the organization.
  • Identify and visualize the impact proposals have on defined business drivers, benefits, costs, and resource demand.

View Progress using a Portfolio Gantt

OnePlan’s Portfolio Plan can be used to visualize and manage the progress and interdependencies of multiple projects within a portfolio.

OnePlan Portfolio Plan includes the following elements:

  • A timeline: This is a horizontal axis that shows the duration of the projects in the portfolio, typically in days, weeks, or months.
  • Tasks: These are the individual activities or deliverables that make up the projects in the portfolio. Each task is represented by a horizontal bar on the Gantt chart, with the length of the bar representing the duration of the task.
  • Dependencies: These are the relationships between tasks, such as the order in which tasks must be completed or the resources that are required to complete them. Dependencies are typically represented by lines connecting the tasks on the Gantt chart.
  • Milestones: These are significant events or achievements within the portfolio, such as the completion of a major project or the achievement of a specific goal. Milestones are typically represented by a diamond symbol on the Gantt chart.

Visualize and manage your portfolio using Boards

OnePlan Portfolio Board is a visual tool used to track and manage the progress of plans within a portfolio. It includes a series of columns and/or lanes that represent the different stages or phases of the plan lifecycle, and it can be used to display information about each plan, such as the plan name, owner, status, budget and more.

Regardless of the type of portfolio board being used, the goal is typically to provide a clear and visual representation of the portfolio’s progress and status, and to help managers and other stakeholders identify any potential issues or delays. Portfolio boards are often used in conjunction with other project management tools and techniques, such as agile methodologies or earned value analysis, to help manage and optimize the portfolio.

Build Portfolio Roadmaps to communicate and align efforts to a common vision

Roadmapping is a strategic planning technique that involves creating a visual representation of an organization’s future plans and goals. OnePlan’s Roadmap includes a timeline that shows the order in which activities, projects, or initiatives will be undertaken, and it is used to communicate and align the organization’s efforts towards a common vision or objective.

There are several different types of roadmaps OnePlan can support, including:

  • Product roadmaps: These roadmaps focus on the development and launch of new products or features, and they typically include details about the features and benefits of the product, as well as the target market and go-to-market strategy.
  • Technology roadmaps: These roadmaps outline the technologies and capabilities that an organization plans to develop or adopt in the future, and they can be used to align technology investments with business objectives.
  • Business roadmaps: These roadmaps outline the steps that an organization will take to achieve its long-term business goals, and they can include a variety of initiatives, such as new product launches, market expansion, or process improvements.
