22290Re: [scrumdevelopment] Agile Portfolio Managment
- Jul 3, 2007I thought Portfolio management was more about
monitoring the business indicators for a group of
projects, Schedule, budgets etc...
It is not the same as project management. In fact, I
suppose an important function for portfolio management
is to provide an supportive environment for good
methodologies to work (like Scrum for instance).
Ofcourse a Project protfolio manager with an eye and
stomach for detail would probably delve into how
something like Scrum is working and guide projects on
a hands-on manner (!?! not always a good thing, if it
keeps on going).
