Have you already been practicing Agile methods but wondering how you can take Agile and Lean methods to the Portfolio Level? Does your organization approve too many projects without understanding capacity? do you ‘push’ and multi-task several projects at the same time using the same team members? This webinar will serve as a foundation for exploring how Agile and Lean methods can apply at the portfolio level and why the concept of stable teams is critical to your success. We will cover the Agile/Lean Portfolio Lifecycle diagram and discuss why moving to a ‘Lean’ Portfolio Planning and Execution approach is necessary. This webinar is first of a series of 4-5 webinars that will be delivered in 2013. Next webinar will dig deeper into Strategic Visioning, Building the Portfolio Backlog and Idea Qualification
In our previous webinar we discussed the Portfolio Planning Lifecycle using creative Kanban walls to visualize the Planning and Execution steps.

We'll also some of the important Agile Qualification filters you should consider before 'approving' a project and why you should consider discontinuing the use of 'Go/No Go' terminology!
This webinar will cover the very important, yet commonly rushed, initial phases of an Agile (or non-Agile) Project.

If you are looking for some new and fresh ideas to improve your existing practices then this workshop is for you!

In this video lecture, we describe Agile Process Design and why this approach is important to both Project Managers (part of the deliverables) and Business Analysts (focus on needs). Explicit approaches will be highlighted in this webinar, including examples of how processes are designed in an agile way.
