Leveraging Adaptavist's expertise in ScriptRunner, and the visualization
power of VisualScript, Arm IT was able to create truly digital Program Boards.
These new digital Program Boards visualize the planned and fixed versions
of features for each ART participating in the PI. For each feature, the team
sets a planned and fixed (forecast) version estimating when the feature is
due to be delivered within the PI. ScriptRunner and VisualScript use
these fields to organize the features on the digital Program Boards.
Using standard Jira linkages, any stakeholder can quickly see the dependencies
between features at a glance. This allows the IT Product Delivery leadership team,
Product Teams, and customers within the business to see straight away if a predecessor
feature occurs in a later Sprint, highlighting the dependency in orange. Other benefits
include the ability to track the delta between planned and forecast delivery, and
color coding of features to indicate risk to delivery, all from one dashboard.
