Establish a modern portfolio management system aligned with Lean Agile principles

This three-days interactive training will provide you with the practical tools and techniques required to implement the three dimensions of LPM: Strategy and Investment Funding, Agile Portfolio Operations, and Lean Governance. You will learn to establish a modern portfolio management system in line with Lean-agile principles. You will establish a deeper understanding of the SAFe principles, roles, processes and techniques at the portfolio level. This will enable you to capture the current and future state of your portfolio using the Portfolio Canvas tool, and how to derive key business initiatives (portfolio epics) to achieve that portfolio vision. Through hands-on exercises you will learn how to achieve epic flow using the Portfolio Kanban System, and how to prioritize epics for maximum business value. You will also learn how to establish "value stream budgets” using “participatory budgeting”, how to implement useful "lean budget guardrails", and how to measure portfolio performance.

Lean Portfolio Management is an advanced training in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Therefore we recommend to attend a SAFe training in advance, because knowledge of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is required.
