Project Forecasting: Hazy Planning Clears Up with Portfolio for JIRA

Add to calendar
Presented by: 

One of the best-known oxymorons in the industry is Agile Planning. How can you plan when everything's made up and the points don't matter? Better yet, how do you scale the chaos that is Agile? How do you navigate the fog of uncertainty and foster organizational trust between the business and the teams?

Agile is as tightly controlled and planned as more "traditional" project management strategies. The problem? How do you consolidate information and collaborate on organizational strategies? How do you navigate through rocky shores ahead? Or ensure your course is steady? Portfolio for JIRA provides you the forecast you need while allowing teams to focus on plotting the course and scale as your organization grows.

  • The State of PM - Challenges in aligning traditional PM with agile product teams
