Why Anaplan for Agile Implementation - The Anaplan Way?

Start with a blueprint for your project planning needs, creating and segmenting user stories into sprints. Manage your project from start to finish, with real-time adjustments on project scope, project milestones and tasks, and project resource margins.
Use a library of KPIs, or build your own, to test and identify activity metrics and available resources for predicting your project completion. Anaplan’s project planning software offers you the ability to apply an unlimited number of driver-based “what-if” scenarios to model, for example, resource capacity plans, the impact of availability constraints, by skill set and experience, or other drivers.
Bring visibility to your projects with built-in calendars and reports, including resource gaps and burndown rate.
