New Portfolio Vision Details

Posted by:

We’ve just completed Portfolio Vision details.  Frankly, elaborating this section caused a pretty deep rethink about the way we have observed Investment Themes, the kanban systems, and Portfolio backlog actually being used and applied in the last few years.  And frankly, they are applied somewhat differently than we anticipated and as the Big Picture portrayed them, particularly with respect to the observation that the primary investment themes ARE themselves value streams/ARTs, and they don’t need to go through ...

Posted by:

The team has been working extremely hard in a major push to meet our self-imposed deadline of V1.0 of the Scaled Agile Framework ™ in time  for Agile 2012 next week. (These timeboxes really work, though we must admit that we waterfalled this PSI, at least a bit….)
