Agile Development 2.0 integration with Project Portfolio Management

Project Portfolio Management leverages the Agile Development 2.0 application to combine the Scrum methodology with project-based IT development.

IT organizations typically work on multiple projects with shorter time schedules. The project planning and tracking is done using waterfall, but the group prefers scrum methodologies to carry out their work. It then becomes a challenge to track project status when there is an agile development phase. This integration between Agile Development 2.0 with Project Portfolio Management facilitates a combination of waterfall and agile methods for project management and development.

The flow described below is applicable when Agile Development 2.0 is activated along with Project Portfolio Management.
  • Create a group to represent a Scrum team.
  • Add members to the group.
  • Create sprints.
  • Assign groups to projects from the Project Workbench.
  • Maintain group and project backlogs. Multiple projects can be under development and groups can be assigned to multiple projects. Each project and each group has its own backlog. The project backlog includes all stories related to a project. The group backlog includes stories from multiple projects that have been assigned to the group.
  • Perform group sprint planning. The group refines the combined backlog, ranks the stories and assigns points, and adds stories to sprints based on priority.
  • Create stories, including one-off stories that are not related to projects.
  • Track progress in stories, phases, and projects.
