Here we explain how GoalEnvision can be used as a valuable tool when working with the Agile/Scrum model to drive effective and efficient project management.


Agile methods, such as Scrum, have been widely adopted by organisations to improve their project management and product development processes. Agile emphasises iterative and incremental development, frequent feedback and cross-functional collaboration. To effectively implement agile methods, teams need a robust tool that aligns with agile principles and supports goal setting, tracking and execution. GoalEnvision, a comprehensive goal setting and execution model/framework, is a powerful tool that can enhance Agile/Scrum practices for teams. 

Agile management by objectives:

In Agile/Scrum, teams work in short, timed iterations called sprints, focusing on delivering value in small increments. GoalEnvision's goal management capabilities allow teams to define sprint goals, track progress and measure results. Teams can create goals for each sprint, set metrics to measure progress, assign responsible people, and define conditions for success. This helps teams align their sprint goals with the overall project goals, ensuring that the work done in each sprint is in line with the desired outcomes.

Planning and co-operation:

Agile/Scrum emphasises cross-functional collaboration, and GoalEnvision's action planning and collaboration features allow teams to work together towards their sprint goals. Teams can create action plans, assign tasks to team members, set deadlines, and track progress. Teams can also collaborate within the platform, making it easy to communicate and coordinate work, ensuring that all team members are aligned and working towards the sprint goals.

Real-time monitoring and reporting:

Agile/Scrum teams rely on frequent feedback and monitoring to ensure the project is on track. GoalEnvision's monitoring and reporting capabilities down to daily reports for their sprint goals. Teams can track the progress of their goals using the defined metrics, identify any bottlenecks, and make data-driven decisions to keep the project on track.

Flexibility and adaptability:

Agile/Scrum promotes flexibility and adaptability to changes in requirements and priorities. GoalEnvision's flexibility in goal setting and execution allows teams to easily adapt and adjust their sprint goals based on changing requirements or stakeholder feedback. Teams can update goals, metrics and conditions in real time, ensuring they are always in line with the changing needs of the project.

Continuous improvement:

Agile/Scrum emphasises continuous improvement, and GoalEnvision supports teams in implementing the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle, which is a fundamental concept in Agile. Teams can set goals, implement action plans, monitor progress, and make adjustments as needed to improve their performance. GoalEnvision's features for monitoring, reporting and adjusting support teams to continuously improve their sprint goals and results.

Improved visibility and transparency:

Agile/Scrum encourages transparency and visibility into work progress. GoalEnvision provides a centralised platform where teams can see the progress of their sprint goals, metrics and milestones in real time. This enhanced visibility allows teams to quickly identify any issues, address them quickly, and keep all team members informed of the status of the project.
