Agile Portfolio Management – Agility by delivering changes as business as usual.
Many frameworks use the model ‘run the business’ (permanent teams doing the work) versus change the business’ (work will be done by temporary groups of people). Projects and programs are managed via ‘change the business’. We see project and programme managers bringing people together for a definite period to make this happen. But in many cases, we are confronted with budget overruns, delays and unhappy customers because what is delivered is not what they really need. As a reaction to these unsuccessful projects, a group of people created the agile manifesto, and based on that several agile delivery frameworks were designed to help to deliver more successful projects.
