Agile Portfolio Management
When development teams adopt Agile practices, they still need to answer business questions about actual progress, delivery dates and cost. The business also needs to collaborate with development to create realistic roadmaps and provide clear visibility into strategic priorities to optimize development work beyond the sprint and release level.
Rally Portfolio Manager solves these challenges by providing the necessary feedback loops between business and development in a single system of record.

PMOs and business leaders can diligently compare portfolio options before deciding where and when to move forward with execution. Rally Portfolio Manager lets you capture value, risk and cost for higher-level initiative work, so you can remove emotions from the critical prioritization process. Plus, you can tailor your ranking analysis with custom prioritization attributes, then easily create Rally Platform Apps to visualize your prioritization results.
Rally Portfolio Manager helps Agile development teams understand the business reasons behind sprint and release-level user stories by connecting development user stories to higher-level portfolio investments. This minimizes development waste by keeping development resources aligned with the portfolio’s strategic allocations and investment priorities.
Rally Portfolio Manager gives you full traceability from the portfolio level to the development task level. PMOs and business leaders can assess the impact of redirecting development resources to address new competitive threats or market opportunities, and collaboratively decide the best course of action.
Rally Portfolio Manager provides unprecedented visibility into the high-level status of Agile development work. It aggregates development status above the team and user story levels to provide epic, initiative and project status in terms meaningful to those outside development: percent complete, planned start date, projected end date, actual start and completion dates.
By having access to development and strategy information in one system of record, PMOs and business leaders track and manage development status in terms useful for the rest of the business.
Rally Portfolio Manager removes guesswork from planning and tracking strategic roadmaps, so your organization and customers build confidence that roadmaps are achievable and meaningful. Rally helps you base strategic plans on actual development capacity and actual rate of development progress. From an interactive timeline, you can clearly visualize dependencies and respond by adjusting other work to maintain delivery commitments of key strategic goals.
Rally Portfolio Manager gives you answers you can trust:
- What are we actively working on?
- What is completed?
- How much have we spent so far?
- What may get delayed and why?
Rally Portfolio Manager also shows work in progress in context of the entire idea-to-delivery value stream, so you can address resource bottlenecks at each stage and keep value flowing. By adopting a governance process based on facts, you empower business leaders to make informed trade-off decisions and confidently steer the organization.
