Establish a modern portfolio management system aligned with Lean Agile principles

The three-day, interactive SAFe Lean Portfolio Management Training (LPM) will provide you with practical tools and techniques needed to implement strategy, investment finance, agile portfolio operations, and lean business management. 

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

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) are a prerequisite.

You will learn to build a modern portfolio management system aligned with Lean Agile principles. In order to take advantage of a "Lean-Agile Organization", we also teach you the key frameworks and processes at the portfolio level. This will enable you to capture the current and future state of your portfolio with the Portfolio Canvas tool and derive the key business initiatives (portfolio epics) to achieve this portfolio vision. 

Through hands-on exercises, you will use a portfolio kanban to define the flow of the portfolio and prioritize epics for maximum business value. The course also provides insights into creating "value stream budgets" and "lean budget guardrails" and measuring portfolio performance.

The third day of training will focus on implementing the first phase of the Lean Portfolio Management Implementation Roadmap, aka "Align". You will develop a plan to successfully prepare for the LPM Implementation Kickoff Workshop in your organization.
