New course helps senior leaders and portfolio managers adapt their investments to enable faster innovation and more agile execution.
BOULDER, COLO. (PRWEB) JULY 08, 2019
Scaled Agile, Inc., provider of SAFe®, the world’s leading framework for enterprise agility, has announced its latest course, Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) with SAFe® 4 Lean Portfolio Manager certification. This three-day workshop-style course is designed to help senior leaders align investment decisions with strategy to enhance execution through a culture of innovation, flexibility, and speed.
Traditional approaches to portfolio management were not designed for a global economy or the impact of digital disruption. These factors put organizations under pressure to work with a high degree of uncertainty while still delivering innovative solutions quickly and predictably. A disconnect between the leadership’s vision and strategy, and the teams that do the work, is what most commonly puts this at risk.
To address this, course attendees will learn how to capture the current state of their portfolio and quickly ideate scenarios to evolve it to a better future state. They will also learn how to establish and improve innovation workflow with the Portfolio Kanban system and how to prioritize initiatives for maximum economic benefit.
“The Lean Portfolio Management course was incredibly useful for our implementation of SAFe at Travelport,” said Hilla Knapke, Director, Agile Practice Office and SAFe Enterprise Transformation, Travelport. “The format and structure of the course enabled us to create our LPM implementation roadmap, and leave with next steps clearly articulated and actionable. I highly recommend this course for any organization implementing Lean portfolio management practices at scale.”
“While executives see the big picture, they’re not always close enough to the everyday work to figure out what will drive business outcomes,” said Richard Knaster, SAFe Fellow and course product owner. “Our goal with Lean Portfolio Management is to help senior leaders get everyone involved in developing solutions aligned with the strategy and the future of the business. When this happens, all people within the portfolio can effectively execute as one unified team to create extraordinary business results.”
The course will prepare attendees for the SAFe® 4 Lean Portfolio Manager certification exam. Attendees will also receive a one-year membership to the SAFe Community Platform.
With the addition of Lean Portfolio Management, and the soon to be released Agile Product and Solution Management course, Scaled Agile continues to expand its catalog of courses that help organizations align strategy and execution.
Scaled Agile’s portfolio now includes 12 professional certifications designed to meet the needs of Lean-Agile executives and professionals throughout their career as they practice, consult, or train others in SAFe.
