Special Talk: Scaling Agile with Agile Portfolio Planning

In his session at Agile Coffee Talk, Sanjay Gupta will share insights on how Agile Portfolio Planning can help businesses in scaling Agiile across their organization. He will share how businesses can set strategic guidance and create organization alignment from strategy to product to delivery.

He will talk about capacity based portfolio planning and the way to implement the same. Based on the approach of Active Planning for Maximising Value, in Agile Portfolio Planning we frame the demand and supply question differently – rather than Desire Vs Capacity – We ask Desire Based on Capacity and hence maximizing value based on capacity. Desire comes from – Market, Executive, Product Managers based on vision and strategy of the organization prioritized in portfolio of items – capacity comes from teams (fixed) and programs (teams @ scale for governance) And Alignment between What We Want and What We can do is by answering that key question “Design Based on Capacity” and answering that question not one time but @ regular cadence.
