Achieving Agile success requires more than just a set of tools. Instead, it demands a strategic approach to planning, resource management, and execution. Tempo, a trusted name in the Atlassian ecosystem, offers two powerful solutions to help you achieve this – Tempo Structure and Tempo Planner. These tools seamlessly integrate with Jira to streamline project workflows and optimize resource allocation. So, let’s explore how these tools work together to help you achieve Agile project success.

Tempo Structure: Visualize, Track, and Manage Projects with Ease

Tempo Structure revolutionizes project management within Jira by providing a unified, spreadsheet-like view of Jira issues – from high-level initiatives to granular sub-tasks – across multiple projects and teams. Here’s how Tempo Structure empowers teams.

Flexibility and Visibility

Tempo Structure offers more flexibility, allowing teams to customize structures to match their preferred workflow (whether it’s Agile, Waterfall, or a hybrid approach). Plus, with easy-to-digest views, teams gain comprehensive visibility into project data, enhancing collaboration and decision-making.

Automation and Real-time Updates

Next, the automation features in Tempo Structure, such as Generators, enable dynamic structures that update automatically as changes occur in Jira. Essentially, this ensures real-time progress tracking and eliminates manual data entry. That means you save time and improve accuracy.

Efficient Resource Allocation

By integrating with Tempo Timesheets, Tempo Structure provides insights into resource allocation and availability. Also, teams can track key performance indicators (KPIs) per team or account, enabling efficient resource allocation and informed decision-making.

Tempo Planner enables teams to effortlessly monitor capacity and plan resources on individual and team levels. Plus, with real-time metrics and customized reports, teams can ensure optimal resource allocation and prevent over-commitment.

Accurate Future Work Planning

With features like multiple resource assignments and full-time equivalent (FTE) prioritization, Tempo Planner facilitates accurate future work planning. And, teams can even prioritize work based on capacity constraints. Ultimately, this ensures a balanced approach to resource allocation.

Seamless Integration with Jira

Tempo Planner also seamlessly integrates with Jira, allowing users to plan time for their teams with just a click or a drag-and-drop action. Another bonus is the user-friendly interface and customization options – these ensure a personalized experience for every user.
