This two or three day (remote), interactive training will provide you with the practical tools and techniques required to implement strategy and investment finance, agile portfolio operations and lean business management. You will learn to build a modern portfolio management system aligned with Lean Agile principles. To leverage the benefits of a Lean Agile organization, we also teach you the essential framework and processes at the portfolio level.
