We Know What Works

WiseWorks is unique because it helps organizations capture information with a powerful facilitation method. Our approach combines collaboration with a relentless drive to understand the purpose of an activity, so that an entire business can achieve laser focus agreement on business strategy.

Instead of asking “what do you do first?”, “what do you do second?”, “what do you do next?”, we bring a completely different way of thinking to the table.

Focus on Purpose – The Japanese say you must ask “why” five times; we agree with them. You will learn how to accomplish that by focusing on purpose and thus bringing your subject matter experts (“SMEs”) to agreement more quickly.

Emphasis on Completeness and Weaving Universes Together – You will learn how to help your SMEs find ALL the activities necessary to achieve an objective. This provides the basis for identifying the interactions between teams and processes so that the business dramatically improves effectiveness.

Using WiseWorks changes the way organizations think about their value stream. You can stretch your modeling aptitude in a way that will help your SMEs dramatically transform their businesses.

As you grow your capability you will want to expand your audience and pull in others; in other words, you will want to expand your work to the larger organization. Our enterprise edition is designed for just that: it offers the ability to have multiple modelers working at the same time; to offer “read-only” access to the models; to capture comments from stakeholders; to print (or .pdf) models; and to pull the information you’ve captured into Excel for decision-making analysis.

Trusted source of multidimensional, reusable business context data

WiseWorks captures business context as a holistic view of the business activities, business information, resources, and constraints involved in achieving an organization’s strategic vision, value stream, or business outcomes

Business use cases can be identified by a set of activities at the same level within the model and can be defined by the details captured in the relationships for each activity

The model can be used to derive requirements and to elicit, store, and validate them. Every requirement can be traced back to a specific business activity

WiseWorks can provide the information needed for an action, the actor responsible for the action, the timing of the action, and the other actions that precede and follow the action.

model visually ties strategy and business goals to business domains, the business value streams, and the portfolio of software development projects. The portfolio is tied to projects – to epics within a project – to functionality actions and sprint development    tasks. Every person knows where their work fits within the project and overall business strategy
