Alfabet Portfolio Playbooks: Optimizing Feature Backlog Management
Agility is core to digital business success and approaches such as Scrum, Kanban and DevOps have revolutionized software development to enable IT to deliver products in ever shorter release cycles. This is often visible in the form of small, agile teams managing features and change requests in application lifecycle management (ALM) tools such as Jira. However, this agility needs to be framed in the overall direction, plans and strategy of the organization. The backlog is generated not only from the activity of the implementation teams and their business counterparts, but also from analysis of strategy and operative performance. These two perspectives need to be brought together. In this portfolio playbook we look at how to achieve this by integrating strategic planning and portfolio management tools such as Alfabet and operative ALM tools such as Jira.
