The idea to implement ActivityTimeline product was formed at the time when waterfall and standard agile (scrum) methodologies were not working well for us. The task was to manage one web development/design team that do many small projects in parallel with resource sharing and a lot of change requests during design/implementation.
We had started investigation of possible solutions and came up with completely different management approach. We called it "Resource Oriented Management".
We concentrated our attention on people not tasks and created ActivityTimeline.
We developed "Resource Oriented Management" that proved its right for living on our current projects where people are shared across teams.
Center place has weekly dashboard that is represented as large table-like calendars. Every row is one person, every column - one work day of a week.
ActivityTimeline is not a replacement of all of your management tools, it is an addition to them. ActivityTimeline fills the resource management gap in JIRA. And our way is to manage teams and tasks on intuitive weekly-based resource dashboard. Project manager sees current assignments of entire team on one screen.
Moreover, they can do correction of anticipated start/end dates, prioritization and re-assignement of JIRA tasks directly on that screen. The dashboard supports two-ways synchronization with JIRA and that means everything will be up to date automatically.
Brilliant visibility who is doing what and when it's going to be done
Q: Do you support standalone installation?A: Yes, ActivityTimeline can be installed on your private server.
Q: Will ActivityTimeline update dashboard if I change something in JIRA?A: Yes, synchronization is two-ways.
Q: How issue start/end dates are saved into JIRA?A: Anticipated start/end dates are stored into JIRA custom fileds if configured or into internal database.
ActivityTimeline is intended to help managing teams where people are shared between projects.
The tool provides excellent visibility of issue assignements and tasks schedule as well as makes it easy to re-plan.
