Workpath is the Enterprise Outcome Management platform

Comparing Workpath to Jira Align

Jira Align is a project management tool and a solid Enterprise Agile Solution. Companies that are striving to connect technical execution with business strategy use it. But strategy execution is for the entire company, not just for IT teams.

So let’s take a closer look at the differences.

If you are in IT or IT leadership look no further…

Jira Align is the right project management tool to connect individual technical tasks with your business strategy.

If you oversee strategy execution and want to align the entire company:

Workpath helps Strategic, Financial, Transformation Office, Operational Excellence, Portfolio Management and IT departments to achieve their most important goals, and to align them vertically and horizontally across tens of Business Units.

Read what our customers have to say about us

In the past if a member from one team wanted to talk to a member of another team it had to go all the hierarchy up and down. Now we can go the horizontal way and teams directly talk to each other. Before it would have taken weeks or months to make decisions.

With the progress visualization and transparency we can see what progress is made, who is aligned and who is contributing to one another. And that kind of transparency is triggering discussions now that get down to what we are actually doing in this company and why we are doing it.

Workpath’s advantages

How are we different?

Built for the entire organization and for fast adoption

Organizations ramp up fast with Workpath. With easy UI, Workpath is the solution for OKRs at scale in your entire organization. Plus, you get dedicated CSMs included in your subscription, and powerful training and enablement services.
Jira Align has complex configurations and non-technical users find it hard to work with.

Fits any OKR process and scales fast with no technical debt

Workpath offers flexibility and customizability for any type of OKR process. We work with tens of enterprises with varying OKR cycles and up to 7 layers of hierarchy.
Jira Align is a project management tool. It can be used for setting goals, but it lacks the enablement for a true OKR process roll-out. Soon, technical debt and scalability issues arise.

Achieve alignment, efficiency and better resource allocation

Through Workpath’s services and features you improve the way you execute your company or business unit strategy and decrease the risk of not achieving your goals by up to 35%.
Jira Align is a solid tool, but difficult to scale outside technical departments.

Why Workpath might not be right for you

If you want a project management tool

We integrate with Jira and other project management tools, but we are not one. We sit between strategic portfolio management (SPM) and activity management. In doing so, we create transparency and coordination for strategy implementation. If you're looking for a project management tool, Jira Align is for you.

If you are an SMB

OKRs are really powerful but to successfully implement them you also need to put in place solid processes. We provide change management and professional services to this purpose, which are tailored to enterprise scale.

If you do not need elaborate analytics

Workpath provides real-time performance analytics and in-depth reports for enterprise-level strategy execution, enabling informed decision-making with data consolidated from multiple sources.
