Portfolio Bootcamp, presented by Michelle Melancon, Scrum Master/Agile Coach

Topics will cover the following:

Let’s create some Portfolio Live Plans and have a Q&A on what exactly Portfolio Live Plans is and how to get started.  Let’s dig into how you can use Live Plans in different roles to track progress and forecast what you want to deliver and when. We can work through questions and scenarios and hopefully I can provide some insight for you. I will also talk about some of the pain points that I have worked through in getting Portfolio rolled out.
