The Large and the Small: Winter 2014 is Here

Enterprise Agile Planning

A new year is upon us and with that, the new Winter 2014 Release. While the process of delivering our quarterly releases means each is roughly equivalent in size, there is still something special about the annum’s turn. With thoughts of what is new and fresh, a couple of the new features spring to mind. One, Epic Release Planning, is focused more on the broader organization and strategic alignment. The other, new Detail Views, addresses needs at the individual level.

Large and Small Rewards

Rewards, both Large & Small

Epic Release Planning encourages a more strategic mindset in your planning. Gone are the days when you have only a somewhat-prioritized backlog to drive the release plans. With the ability to use larger-grained features as the primary building blocks, release planning steps away from the tactical world in the direction of boldly implementing company strategy. Instead of focusing solely on story points, you can now allow value and risk to be your guides. By elevating your planning game, better alignment of strategy and delivery is sure to follow.

In contrast to the broad scale of corporate strategy, the winter release also offers something refreshing for the individuals at the team level – you know, the driving force implementing the strategic plans. An abundance of customer input, review and feedback has helped us deliver a much-improved set of interactions and visuals down at the detailed level. New, more distinguishable detail views, embedded links and images in descriptions, richer rich text fields and a new owner’s control that is both more efficient and more functional than the old are new enhancements that awaken in this release. Early feedback on the inline image capability from internal designers and testers at VersionOne has been gleeful, to say the least.
