Agile Project Portfolio Management

We’ll come to you to fine tune Agile and Lean practices or expand methods beyond your teams for a cohesive Agile adoption.

We help transition governance structures toward lighter-weight, Agile governance best practices.  Our consultants help align teams with broader portfolio goals to manage dependencies and optimize value streams.

  • Many agile delivery issues are really portfolio issues in disguise.
  • Too many simultaneous projects, improper team structures, and lack of an effective measurement and management system lead to delivery challenges that will impact all of your efforts.

Let us work with you to better visualize your portfolio, measure against the ‘4 kinds of work’, develop project sequencing and prioritization schemes, and accelerate delivery.
