Agile is continuing to build momentum across a variety of processes, outside of the traditional solution delivery space. New frameworks are driving agile into the portfolio management space. The question often posed is whether Agile is the right approach for these processes. Research on the subject is inconclusive. However, research on what drives successful businesses is not inconclusive – begging the question of whether Agile practices work are effective for portfolio development and management. Come to this session to understand how Agile can best be used to support effective Portfolio Management. Research on Portfolio Management best practices will be provided and lined up with current Agile approaches. Recommendations will be provided to help companies understand how to leverage Agile and non-Agile practices in their business models.

Learning Objectives
• Understand how Agile is being integrated into Portfolio Management
• Learn what drives Portfolio Management success
• Understand how to leverage Agile to ensure that it properly supports Portfolio Management success
