Best Practice di Portfolio, Programme, Project Management and integration in Agile contests



The speech is aimed at providing an insight into the available and most recognized – as standard de facto – best practices in the governance of strategic initiatives at an organization (Portfolio Management) and in the management of complex Programmes and Projects (Programme and Project Management), and how these frameworks could be merged and integrated with best practices in the agile domain (e.g. SCRUM, AgilePM®, PRINCE2 Agile®).
There are several available practices in the domain of complex project management with both a traditional (waterfall) orientation and an agile approach: when to adopt the first or the latter? Which agile practice does better fit to the specific context? Which criteria could lead in the selection of which practice? Do exist hybrid frameworks and how these could be integrated at the different levels of management of change (portfolio, programme and project)?
Examples of integration among practices and recommendations will be provided.
