Roundtable discussion - Portfolio and Roadmap Planning Strategies and Tools
With the evolution of the New User Experience in Clarity PPM, end users have been provided a powerful visual tool for top-down planning in Roadmaps. In addition, many organizations may still find great value in using the Portfolio Management tools provided in PPM Classic. Which should you choose? What is the value of one over the other? What are their limitations? Can you successfully and reasonably support both in your organization? What successes have your organizations realized through the use of these tools, and where have you encountered barriers to successful adoption? The goal of this discussion is to share insights and experiences, and perhaps also come away with some pointed suggestions that can be provided to the Broadcom Clarity Product Development team.
