Every organization that develops products needs to make decisions about how to allocate money for product development.  As organizations grow and mature, the informal process for making investment decisions should likewise grow and mature into an effective Portfolio Management process.  In reality, very few organizations manage portfolios effectively, and so fail to make the best use of their limited resources.
Dr. Thompson will present an Agile perspective on Portfolio Management.  In this presentation, you will learn techniques for making quick and effective strategic business decisions about:

* The formulation of initiatives and the assessment of value, effort, and Return on Investment
* The approval and scheduling of initiatives
* The evaluation of the status of ongoing initiatives
* The continuation or termination of ongoing initiatives

These techniques are relevant not only to Agile projects, but also to hybrid, and classic plan-driven environments.
