Portfolio Planning and Prioritisation at Scale

This talk is about how to do portfolio planning and prioritization at scale based on experiences within one of the largest banks in The Netherlands. I’ll elaborate on practices we developed, show examples and discuss how we plan for short term (< 3 months) and longer term. Prioritization and planning across over 25 autonomous teams is hard. Especially when all work on their own contribution to department and organization goals. It gets harder when there are more than a dozen departments like this and some of them have dependencies with your own department. For over a year we have been collecting practices on how to encourage autonomy whilst keeping alignment over the departments and within teams.

This talk is about how to do portfolio planning and prioritization at scale based on experiences within one of the largest banks in The Netherlands . We have developed practices on how to plan with teams and departments based on what will bring us closer to our goals. In this talk I will elaborate on these practices, show examples of how we have designed portfolio walls and meetings, how we prioritize work and create options in our workload and how the teams balance between achieving their own goals and helping others achieve theirs. We have conducted experiments on what works best for us in over 10 departments at the same time which has given us a nice collection of practices to choose from.
