Agile Portfolio Management

News
28 November 2017

Portfolio management enables organisations to select, prioritise and execute the optimum blend of change initiatives that deliver business value by coordinating processes and decision-making.

Many organisations using portfolio management still have challenges which an Agile approach can resolve, such as:

  • Difficulty incorporating change and ensuring the right things are done at the right time due to fixed long-term plans and budgets
  • Limited organisational effectiveness caused by over-detailed early-stage planning, and lack of day-to-day testing of the strategy
  • Failure to consider stakeholders, especially those closest to changes, in strategy & portfolio decisions
  • Insufficient challenging or validating of business cases
  • Appetite for change which exceeds the capacity to deliver it
  • Poor decision-making due to poor Management Information

Agile Portfolio Management from the Agile Business Consortium has been specifically designed to address these challenges. Order your copy now!
