Agile - Agile Portfolio Management


VUCA (volatilityuncertaintycomplexity und ambiguity) describes the fast-changing environment in which companies operate. In response agile principles and practices are being adopted, to create products in short cycles and quickly respond to changing demands.

But what does this mean for the level of corporate governance and strategy? How can the prerequisites be created at this level to effectively support unto and teams? And how can the organization be aligned with the strategy, even in times of fast and significant business changes? What are the steering mechanisms of an agile organization? How can resources and people in product development be shifted and realigned quickly during significant changes?

The answer lies in the implementation of an Agile Portfolio Management:

  • the company’s ability to breakdown, prioritize and coordinate work based on strategic objectives and react quickly to changing business priorities and deviations to plans in a fast and responsive manner while considering interdependencies, capacity, utilization, risks, and bottlenecks and enabling shifting cash, budget, resources and talent across the organization based on (customer) value-driven decision making.
