Agile Partner Management- Whitepaper

AgilePartnerHardware, software and system product companies routinely use partners for part or all of their new product development, and yet only a few companies are truly competent at managing those partners. The challenge of working with partners is multiplied if we want to take an Agile approach to product development. Using Agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM), or Feature Driven Development (FDD) requires an extremely closely knit and empowered team, so we cannot afford an “arm’s length” relationship with any partner working within the team. Before attempting a partnership for employing the principles of Agile development, a product development organization should have achieved excellence in partner relationship management basics.


Ten Tenets of Project Portfolio Management

AgilePartnerProject Portfolio Management or PPM is critical to every firm, and yet it is perhaps one of the most overlooked elements of business processes. Wedged-in between your strategy processes and your project execution processes, PPM has elements of both. The inputs into the process of PPM include essentially every form of customer facing strategy and internal operations strategy in your company. Inputs also include current execution status and critical issues facing projects in the portfolio. With all of this information, leaders in the PPM process must cut through the noise to make essential decisions about balancing the project portfolio to reflect the overall goals of the firm. PPM is not a one-time event, but rather a continuous process of identifying, monitoring, nurturing and sometimes even killing projects.
