When too many projects are in progress, teams get overburdened by juggling many priorities simultaneously, resulting in low productivity. Another issue includes low transparency of the management process, which can also lead to misalignment between the company’s strategy and its execution.
To deal with all of those, Agile applies the “test, learn and adapt” principles and “Decentralized control” concept on the portfolio level.
Agile is a process that helps teams provide quick responses to the feedback they receive on their project. It creates opportunities to assess a project’s direction during the development cycle.
Agile Portfolio Management deals with how an organization identifies, prioritizes, organizes, and manages different products or initiatives. This is done in a streamlined way in order to optimize the development of value in a manner that’s sustainable in the long run.
The vision and strategy for our work are not just to provide a common platform to work on, but indeed to provide the necessary commitment and support to sharpen the edges of an “agile transition” and make it more operational and effective. We do this through “hackathons” (a number of full-day workshops over a period of time), where we advise our customers about the most optimal implementation through the use of Azure DevOps including Azure Boards, Azure Repos, Azure Pipelines, Azure Test Management, and similar.
