Four lean steps to a more efficient portfolio

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe™) equips portfolio teams to cut waste and increase throughput. Learn the four tactics Jira Align customers have utilized from the SAFe 5.0 framework that, with a conscious eye towards cutting waste, can clear out what gets in the way so teams can focus on the things that matter.

If someone asked you what the goal of lean portfolio management is, you’d probably say “delivering more value.” 

That’s true! But it’s also about cutting waste. 

When you look at the origins of lean, it’s plain to see that it’s as much about cutting out what’s not working as it is about streamlining processes. In the field, we’ve seen great success in getting a lean transformation off the ground when organizations cut fruitless practices and outputs first.

In this webinar, we’ll talk about the four ways organizations can cut waste and deliver more value with LPM. 

We’ll discuss:

  • How to use strategic themes to keep teams aligned - and know what to say “no” to
  • The benefits of bringing work to the teams and partnering with engineering
  • Using Kanban to limit work-in-progress (WIP) with ruthless management of the backlog 
  • Establishing lean budgets, using “roughly right” metrics to keep priority work moving forward
