Drive enterprise agility with lean portfolio management

In this webinar, we’ll talk with Susan Scott, VP Product Operations at Nets Group, the EU’s leading payments solutions provider, about her journey as an agile leader and how implementing lean portfolio management (LPM) practices has helped her teams focus their investments on strategic goals.

The pace of change has prompted enterprises to invest in digital and agile transformations, scaling the benefits of agile teams across the enterprise. But few organizations see this investment turn into real business value. To gain the full benefit of an agile transformation, business and technology teams must work together to focus on top priorities and align work to strategy. 

Watch this webinar and learn why enterprises are adopting the principles of lean portfolio management to align agile development with business strategy, with a focus on driving the delivery of value to customers.

In this webinar you will:

  • Hear from an experienced agile leader about how she’s guided organizations from waterfall to agile to SAFe, and then implemented LPM
  • Learn the importance of building an agile culture first before implementing new agile frameworks
  • Learn how a multinational organization breaks work into smaller batches, iterates faster, and releases product more frequently
  • See how Atlassian partner, Eficode, implements Jira Align to help portfolio managers capture strategic goals and link teams across the agile release train (ART)

Susan discovered Agile in 2007 after a career in project and programme management in the Telecoms sector, and once discovered never looked back.  Instead, she focused on understanding how the changes in engineering ways of working impacted the ways of working across the organisation.  Through incremental changes in portfolio governance processes and the introduction of agile project management, she lead the transition from outputs to outcomes, from projects to products, and from milestones to OKRs.   Susan is currently working in Copenhagen for Nets Group, leading Merchant Services Product Operations and is responsible for Agile & SAFe, Lean Portfolio Management, and Agile Project Management.  Previously to Nets Group, Susan was in London and worked at Barclays Bank, PayPal, Betfair and Vodafone Group.
