    Roland Cuellar

    Roland Cuellar (‘kway-are’) has focused exclusively on agile software development and lean business process improvement for the last 12 years. During that time, he has worked with Capital One, CNBC, Westinghouse Nuclear Power, Nationwide Insurance, US Citizenship and Immigration, the US Courts, and many other clients on enterprise agile adoption.  He has also worked with several start-ups and early-stage ventures, to help accelerate delivery, spoken at numerous conferences and has published several articles on subjects such as, agile, portfolio management, quality, and Kanban. He has a BS in Computer Science from the University of Houston and an MBA from UCLA.

    Roland has a strong belief and affinity for lean methods and believes that with willing and open-minded management and team members, we can always discover better ways to deliver. 

    Topic Description: 

    Project Portfolio Management and Its Impact on Project Delivery

    Many organizations struggle with how to improve project performance and significant effort is placed on project management efforts. However, many of the issues that we see in project delivery have their origin upstream at the portfolio level. Challenges with schedule, scope, quality, and alignment are often natural outcomes of inadequate portfolio management. In this session, we will discuss portfolio management and its direct impact upon cost, quality, and schedule. We will then demonstrate methods for using agile ideas such as visualization, WIP limits, timeboxing, and other tools for dramatically improving project portfolio management and resulting project delivery.

    This Session Qualifies for:
