Portfolio Management: Focus is about saying no 🇩🇪

“Agile has become mainstream these days. But the ultimate goal for adopting Agile isn’t to work in Scrum or Kanban teams, but to become an agile organization being able to easily adopt to changing market demands. To achieve this, it is imperative to implement a strategic mechanism that enables timely and qualified decisions to steer investments for maximum customer and organizational benefit. Deciding to implement an initiative is hard sometimes, but the bigger challenge is to say No. The biggest lever – and the biggest challenge at the same time – is to focus the limited development capacity on the right topics and to decide what not to do. Find out how we adopted SAFe Lean Portfolio Management at Siemens Building Technologies and what we have learned from it.”
