Tips and Tricks for Effective Project Portfolio Management with Kanban

Project managers aim to utilize the organization's capacity as much as possible to complete their projects on time and within budget. Often they plan and execute project activities independently by their peers, optimizing the execution of a single project or only for the projects they are running. In many cases, multiple projects are "competing" for the organization's capacity creating bottlenecks and inefficiency on the project portfolio level. The speakers will demonstrate essential Kanban project portfolio management practices and how you can use flow-related data to make decisions about scheduling multiple project work to increase the business outcomes on the organizational (project portfolio) level. They will illustrate the practices with data and visualizations produced by an interactive multi-project simulation completed as a conference workshop on December 5, 2021



Ivaylo Gueorguiev has gained more than 20 years of experience in performance improvement. As a Program Manager in the European Software Institute CEE, I have planned and managed initiatives in Eastern Europe to deliver tangible benefits to our clients. In many cases, I directly committed to executive consulting and coaching related to performance improvement (Scrum, Lean-Kanban, agile, CMMI) and business orchestration (scaled agile, OKRs, balanced scorecard, strategic management, and business resilience). As a result of my activities, the sponsors of the programs reported significant business benefits such as smooth collaboration of teams and organizational units, high visibility of the workflow, more efficient operations, and shorten time to market.
