What is the real challenge in aligning your agile development with the strategic objectives of the business?

Brian McQuillan, Alan Wendt and Russ King discuss the challenge organizations face that move to Agile Development and then have difficulty aligning with the strategic objectives of the business. Often this challenge impedes the IT organization in their ability to deliver business objectives from the IT perspective. When your organization shifts to Agile you want to allow development organizations to be flexible in how they move to Agile delivery, and yet you still need to see the big picture of how you’re doing aligning goals with the business.

HP’s comprehensive approach to managing multiple types of projects within an organization, whether traditional, agile or other project management methodologies, is brought to fruition with the combination of HP Agile Manager and Project Portfolio Manager (PPM). On the PPM side, you can bring the capabilities to drive business objectives by building through proposals and funded projects, tying that together with the progress of your agile teams within Agile Manager. HP’s Agile Manager and PPM allow your organization to understand project costs and project health, helping you determine where and how you spend your money on resources and budget allocations.
