Best practices


The founder of an agile coaching and training services company explains that companies are adopting agile methodology for software development, an approach that breaks projects into more manageable components than traditionally-managed projects, due to information technology's accelerating rate of change. Krebs explains successful agile portfolio management (e.g., engineering practices that allow for rapid and business need-appropriate delivery of high-quality software); the Scrum framework (which originated in lean manufacturing); and the role of the Project Management Office. An example illustrates how project, resource, and asset portfolio management interact. Resources are appended. Online updates are available.
