Out with the Post It Notes, in with Agile

Let's face it, Agile is changing the PPM world.  

 

We all know that agile frameworks are rapidly gaining popularity among software developers. We also know that it is challenging to support dozens of fast-paced projects without losing track of the big picture. On top of it all, effectively controlling the organization to reduce risk and improve agility, while making sure the projects are aligned with IT and business objectives is challenging.

 

Why?

How do we bridge the gaps of strategy and planning, agile delivery and IT operations? The answer is simple, deliver what matters most. Run, plan and deliver through agile delivery. Run with strategy and planning while filling the gaps with prioritization, governance and measurement. Plan by IT Operations Management by bridging the gaps with quality, automation and collaboration. Deliver through effective Change Management with automation, collaboration and resourcing. All this can be achieved through agile delivery.

 

How can both agile and traditional project management deliver what matters most? With Agile Project Management, the integration of HP Project and Portfolio Management and HP Agile Manager captures all demands to prioritize, strategize and make the most out of resources.

 

HP Agile Manager completes traditional project management by consolidating agile projects while synchronizing with HP Project and Portfolio Management. Features within HP Agile Manager include management of backlogs, user stories and defects, analytical view of deployment and a SaaS solution. Other fresh features are an Intuitive Web 2.0, friendly user interface and integrations with Eclipse and Visual Studio.  Integrating HP Project and Portfolio Management is the answer for managing both agile and traditional projects. It not only prioritizes against value, strategy and available recourses, but then assigns tasks to efficiently execute the project.

On the go? Aren't we all! Who has time to write 1,000 post it notes and hand deliver it to a team member?

 

That's why Agile Project Management is available on the HP PPM Anywhere Mini App for both tablet and Smartphone's (iOS and Android.) It allows you to request, review and approve all projects on the IT Executive Scorecard, from the palm of your hand, ANYWHERE! Hence the term HP Anywhere app.
