The Center of Excellence: A key factor in LPM success

Enterprises are increasingly implementing Lean Portfolio Management to accelerate growth and business agility. Join this webinar to hear what factors our experts say lead to a successful Lean Portfolio Management implementation, including creating a Lean-Agile Center of Excellence.

Lean Portfolio Management is where strategy and execution converge. Jira Align plays a key role in that transformation, powered by integrated planning teams and strategic portfolio alignment.

In this webinar, presenters from Atlassian and Scaled Agile, Inc. share their current best thinking and first-hand knowledge gained from guiding LPM implementations at various stages of planning and execution.

Our presenters will cover:

  • Emerging patterns of LPM in practice
  • Forming a guiding coalition and the impact of a Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE)
  • The roles of leaders, change agents and team members
  • Balancing near-term opportunities with long-term strategy and growth
  • Using Jira Align to gain broad visibility and connect strategy to work
