Flow Methodology

Planview Flow Methodology

Planview Flow Methodology is a step-by-step guide to optimizing value streams and achieving optimal flow in combination with Planview Viz® and Planview Hub. 

Use Flow Methodology to de-risk your strategic bets, improve time to value and predictability, and increase efficiency.


There are five Flow Maturity levels:

  1. Integrated Flow: Integrate work across different applications, so at least some ideas can make an impact

  2. Visible Flow: Provide visibility of progress, so teams can make decisions based on data

  3. Predictable Flow: Make the work predictable, so dependent teams can work efficiently

  4. Aligned Flow: Align work with strategic objectives, so teams work towards the right outcomes

  5. Optimal Flow: Apply intelligent automations, so organizations can scale and respond to new challenges

Learn more details and best practices for each Flow Maturity level in the video below.
