I attended a webinar today on Agile Portfolio Management. The presenter seemed to be advocating a prioritization process driven by opinion and discussion rather than fact (costs, ROI, resource availability). I'm curious to see what techniques group members have seen working effectively to arrive at priorities across competing projects.

While a firm supporter of agile methods and tools, it is the agile principles, centred around outcomes and continued communication, that have always been important.

As many others have said elsewhere, the "silver bullet", while an extremely attractive notion, does not exist. Agile tools and methods are only as good as the disciplined, communicative people that use them and that want to continue finding a better way.

Having said that, it is still very useful to use a cool tool to persuade and convince people of the benefits of a principled approach.

With all the "tools" available, is there a conscensus about "AGILE" being the most effective? I know that it functions but is the industry becoming too dependent on finding "ONE" way fo doing things?
