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)
