Agile & Waterfall Hybrid


Activities allow for smaller pieces of work to be tracked, that don't need to be a full task in the plan.  This allows agile planning of work within the overall plan/schedule.  Schedule tasks with dependencies, etc.  Then, for specific tasks, add individual activities for the various items to complete in that task's time frame.


OnePlan's KanBan board is effective for quickly moving items between statuses.  Also, items can be moved upward & downward within the columns to maintain visibility on the high priority items.
