Portfolio management is one of the most crucial building blocks in unlocking and enabling Agile way of working. Why, one may ask? Creating a clear and structured overview of what is being worked on in, clear set of alternatives to choose from if a pivot is required, and a clear prioritization approach is easy in theory but can be very difficult to implement in practice, given the number of frameworks available (SAFe, Kanban, hybrid to name a few).

So how do you chose a framework that fits the organizational context? What are the key considerations when making that choice? Does the framework matter at all? Or is it safe to assume that all approaches become hybrid once embedded in the context of an organization?
