Advanced Agile Series - Agile Portfolio and Value Management

Advanced Agile Series - Agile Portfolio and Value Management

Friday, April 19, 2024 (9:30 AM - 12:00 PM) (PDT)


Course Overview

As organizations move beyond a single Agile Delivery Team a challenge around managing value within a Portfolio and across multiple teams emerges. Aligning Delivery efforts to the overall strategy will drive improved prioritization around what should be delivered when by each team. Factors to consider can include strategic alignment, scope, cost/budget, people staffing, timing, dependencies and other elements.

For an Agile Portfolio to function it requires key supports like Collaboration Events, Visibility via a ‘Big Board’, and a Roadmap, all on a platform of tools. With these in place, decisions can be taken around Portfolio Intake, Work-In-Progress vs Capacity, and various Prioritization techniques.
