Agile Portfolio Management
Back in 2007, when Jochen Krebs coined the phrase “Agile Portfolio Management” by publishing the first book about this topic, the majority of new projects started waterfall. Today, the majority of projects start with an agile approach and have clearly taken over linear, sequential processes. With a transition from isolated, experimental agile projects that created pockets of agility in the past, to an enterprise-wide adoption will require a new set of tools for executives and decision-makers alike. The beauty of Agile Portfolio Management vs traditional portfolio management is we are using an agile process to run our portfolio of agile projects. That leads to additional organizational learning opportunities, real cultural change and great business opportunities executives do not like to miss.
