Join Us on A Deep Dive into the World of Agile Project Portfolio Management

Agile Project Portfolio Management (APPM) is a combined system of tools, methodologies, and processes to support your organization in reacting to change with the speed that is necessary for your organization to thrive. It helps you to do the right projects and to do projects right.

APPM does not involve making project-by-project choices based on fixed acceptance criteria. Instead, decisions to add or subtract projects from the portfolio are based on the four goals of APPM:

1) Maximize the value of the portfolio;

2) Seek the right balance of projects, thus achieving a balanced portfolio;

3) Create a strong link to strategy, thus: the need to build strategy into the portfolio;

4) Doing the right number of projects

This workshop takes a deep dive into how your company can achieve these goals. To get a better idea what Agile Project Portfolio Management is, and how it differs from its traditional counterpart have a look at the Agile Project Portfolio Management Framework Guide and our extensive article series about Agile Project Portfolio Management.

Workshop outcome

In this intensive one-day workshop we will:

1) Create a deep understanding of the 4 goals of Agile Project Portfolio Management and how they relate to your company's growth and strategy.

2) Discuss Agile Project Portfolio Management and how it can be used to manage your project portfolio in such a way that it maximises the value, is balanced, linked to strategy and the projects actually start delivering benefits fast.

3) Discuss tools and techniques to help you make the right decisions for your organization by breaking down the project portfolio management challenge into building blocks and asking yourself some important questions regarding the context in which you want to use them. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. That is what being Agile is all about!

We Make Learning APPM Fun 

As a workshop, we’ve designed a collaborative, hands-on experience where your own work and ideas drive the content. This is not a passive workshop where you watch PowerPoint presentation after presentation. Instead, we’ll be leveraging the humble whiteboard to communicate and share ideas, creating a dynamic workshop environment with other attending professionals.

We will also provide plenty of time for breaks, so you can get to meet everyone and share experiences – this is a great opportunity to network, as well as gain an understanding of how other organizations and teams have solved problems you are facing.

We will use the Agile Project Portfolio Management Funnel as a guidance for our workshop.
