    Agile Portfolio

    Agile portfolio has similar desired outcomes as traditional portfolio techniques. The agile portfolio goals are:

    1) Select the right opportunity to maximize sustainable profit
    2) Remove non-value outcome activities
    3) Build alignment throughout the organization
    The agile practice is iterative and the focus will be to authorize work on a quarterly basis. This provides flexibility to inspect and adapt according to customer demands and market conditions.

    Our discussion will explore the weighted shortest job first (WSJF) technique to select the right opportunity with the highest priority.
