The Agile Portfolio governs the allocation of people and funding to projects. We are uncovering better ways to manage a project portfolio. With accountability for the overall portfolio, we have come to value:
- Portfolio Governance over Project Governance
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Doing the right thing today over proving the validity of yesterday’s predictions
- Individuals, teams, and interactions over processes and tools
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we place higher value on the items on the left.
