Manage a Mixed Portfolio: Agile in the PMO
Is Agile the right approach for your organization? This course will help you determine the best path to prepare your organization for agile adoption. Learn by following a fictitious scenario where you travel to “Waterfall Island” to meet with its chief and observe his tribe as they adopt agile principles and practices. This course is part of the Agile in the Program Management Office Series, where you serve as a PMO director and guide the transformation of your office from a waterfall-based to an agile-based PMO. Explore the jungle, caves, and ancient cities of Waterfall Island to discover the differences between waterfall and agile management. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:
Qualify a portfolio backlog that consists of programs using both waterfall and agile principles and practices.
Strategically align and qualify a portfolio backlog using agile principles and practices.
Evaluate whether your backlog is aligned to organizational strategic vision.
Create a qualifier filter.
Evaluate your backlog to determine what work qualifies for ranking within the portfolio, and
Rank the work components of your qualified portfolio backlog.
