Lean Portfolio Management for the agile enterprise

Learn how you can lead your organization's shift from top-down, annual prioritization and budgeting practices to a more lean-agile approach to managing your portfolio. The conversation will be lead by LPM expert, Deema Dajani of Scaled Agile Inc., and Atlassian’s EMEA Jira Align Solutions lead, Shane McGuire.

Portfolio management is not a new practice; organizations have always prioritized work, allocated budgets, and governed investments. But as companies simultaneously scale their teams while navigating dynamic markets, portfolio managers need a new approach to balancing resources with the need to deliver constant customer value.

Enter Lean Portfolio Management (LPM), evolved from SAFe©, and one of the core competencies of the Lean Enterprise.

In this webinar you will learn how portfolio managers are implementing LPM, the three common challenges they encounter, and how to address them:

  • Disconnected strategy across products and and how to align teams around a common goal
  • Project overload, a result of top-heavy annual planning, and how to plan work around demand
  • Low visibility into portfolio performance and how to increase transparency
