Implementation Phase

No ratings

Phases.pngWhen working with the Anaplan platform, you can rapidly build prototypes that typically become the foundation of the production model.  Unlike other platforms, very robust prototypes can be built by the model builders in early sprints so that stakeholders can see what the end model may look like.  With Anaplan and the Agile methodology, we can quickly see if you are going in the right direction.  We can create a prototype, sometimes 90% complete structurally, that can be “touched”, discussed, used, tested and critiqued in the first sprint.

Unlike a traditional project management methodology, Agile runs iterative cycles, or sprints. Anaplan bases The Anaplan Way on an Agile methodology called Scrum. 


For more information about Agile, take the Agile suite of courses in Anaplan Learning Center. This chapter highlights Agile concepts that are important to the project, including tracking, daily Scrum meetings, sprint reviews, and the all sprint retrospective. It also includes a section on rapid forensic analysis which can be used when there are performance problems with the model.
