Value Stream Funding Business Outcomes
Value Stream Planning

- We can define how the value stream and associated epics and features will deliver products, systems, and services.
- We can shift our funding model to organize around the value streams that are delivering value to our customers.
- We can capture the costs of our stable team of teams against the relevant value stream.
- We can set the overall value stream budget, providing the context for analyzing and prioritizing epics.
- We can adopt an iterative approach to budgeting and adjust funding based on changing business priorities and outcome-driven indicators.
- We can define benefits or revenue targets that the value stream must yield while providing the context for analyzing and prioritizing epics.
Value Stream Funding Processes
Value Stream Funding provides a mechanism to define the value streams that will realize their strategic plan. This capability allows organizations to set financial targets in terms of projected benefits and revenue and provides a financial baseline for future investments.
Value Stream Planning Process Steps
Value stream planning supports organizations that have made the value stream shift. It allows them to organize their funding model around value streams and connect streams to relevant products.
Define organizational strategic goals and missions
|The Strategy structure is used to manage the initiatives and epics that will deliver the strategic plan of the organization. Customers typically define the strategic structure based on the strategic objectives and goals of the organization.|
Create value stream
Create a record of the new value stream entity in Planview Enterprise One PRM.
Describe and categorize value stream
|After creating a new value stream, complete any configuration-specific description and categorization attributes as determined by your organization's data and information needs.|
Associate to relevant products
Create an association between the value stream and new or existing product or products.

Lean Budgeting Process Step
Lean budgeting enables you to set time-phased financial budgets for each value stream, against which planned and current investments can be analyzed and approved.
Create/manage value stream budget (ART/Team costs)
|Create the value stream budget. The Financial Planning Detail screen inputs financial planning, budgeting, and forecasting data. Roll up financial data from work and strategy to outcome and product.|
Financial Targets Process Steps
Financial targets enable you to set time-phased financial targets for value streams in the form of benefits and revenue, against which planned and current investments can be analyzed.
Create/manage value stream financial targets (benefits/ revenue)
|Capture the revenue targets and benefits of launching the value stream, against which actual costs can be compared later. All appropriate data should be populated in the financial planning detail screen for the value stream.|
Baseline value stream financial plan
|Following the input or roll up of financial planning budgeting and target data, a financial baseline for the financial plan should be taken to compare and track variances on the value stream financials through time.|
