What is ValueOps?
You may have heard this term, but what exactly does ValueOps mean? In short, ValueOps connects your business-level planning with Agile ways of delivering work. Value is at the core of everything we do. After all, why work on something that does not deliver value to your customers?

Agile methodologies have taken the project management and software development world by storm. There are many benefits of applying an Agile methodology to your work, but doing so has created a unique set of issues for business leaders.
With traditional project management methodologies, the ability to plan capacity, assess financial performance, and measure progress was straightforward. When work is project-centric, it is easy to determine the costs associated with those specific deliverables. Resources are assigned to projects, hours are estimated, and costs related to that work are calculated and rolled up, giving management the dashboards and performance metrics they are accustomed to seeing.
Agile methodologies tend to throw a wrench into this way of planning. Agile methodologies provide great value to the customer, but organizations struggle to manage finances and resource capacities, especially in a hybrid environment. This is where ValueOps comes in.
Clarity PPM (Project and Portfolio Management) integrated with Rally provides organizations with the best of both worlds! Rally enables Agile development to be the driving force for your development teams and enables them to deliver continuous value to your customers in a lightweight, product/value-centric way. When Rally and Clarity are integrated, business leaders can plan capacity, develop long-term roadmaps, track financial performance, and more.

While frustrating, timesheets are an integral component of successful management. A typical resource manager oversees a team working on multiple projects simultaneously. The manager needs to ensure that the right people with the right skill sets are assigned to the appropriate projects as they arise, so a clear understanding of current and future capabilities and capacity is essential. For this, the manager needs to have a degree of certainty that the team is entering project time regularly and reliably.
