Tasktop named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Value Stream Management, Q3, 2020 Report

 July 16, 2020

Yaletown Partners is proud to announce that our portfolio company Tasktop has secured a leadership position in The Forrester Wave™: Value Stream Management, Q3, 2020 Report.

Forrester is a leading American market research company that offers syndicated research on technology. In its Forrester Wave™ report, it named Tasktop as one of the world’s leading value stream management (VSM) providers.

VSM is a fundamental tool that systematically documents every step in the software development process and improves flow by identifying waste, reducing process cycle times to shorten time-to-market, and implementing process improvement to produce better product quality. VSM is fundamental to Digital Transformation and the Intelligent Industry, particularly as capital-intensive sectors move to digital driven strategies as products, as Tasktop’s founder and CEO, Mik Kersten, highlights in his influential book, Project to Product.

In preparing its report, Forrester evaluated both the Tasktop Viz and Tasktop Hub VSM software solutions:

  • The Tasktop Viz platform delivers real-time visibility on the progress of digital transformations and provides actionable insights into the obstacles impeding business value delivery, pinpointing where work is slowing down and impacting time-to-market.

  • The Tasktop Hub is a purpose-built integration solution for the software delivery toolchain, designed for large scale organizations of hundreds and thousands of IT staff, where work can span multiple tools, disciplines, locations, suppliers and partners.


In particular, the Forrester Wave™ report cited positive comments regarding Tasktop’s Flow Metric technical measures, praising Tasktop’s approach of not merely measuring process, but more importantly, focusing on delivering outcomes. Customers also praised Tasktop’s innovative user dashboard.

Yaletown congratulates the entire Tasktop team on this prestigious recognition and wishes them ongoing success as they continue to pursue optimization of the software development and delivery process.
