Why should you go for LPM Course?

We are living in a very dynamic and ever changing ecosystem. The traditional way of planning strategy, making investment targets and managing portfolios which were dependent on concepts like quarterly planning, work break down structure, and detailed GANT style project plans are no longer relevant. In place of these, there is a need to learn and practice new concepts that support de- centralized decision making, continuous value flow and planning that deliver measurable metrics and results.

Organizations that follow Lean Portfolio Management have the ability of aligning their business strategy to their objectives and values without compromising on innovation and time to market, keeping in tune with the demands of an ever changing business scenario.

Our comprehensive 3-day course on LPM is focussed on helping participants understand the practical tools and techniques necessary to implement the Lean Portfolio Management functions of Strategy and Investment Funding, Agile Portfolio Operations and Lean Governance.  With tools such as the Portfolio Canvas tool participants will understand the initiatives that need to be taken in order reach a portfolio state that a company has envisioned. Along with understanding how to establish Value Stream Budgets and Lean Budget Guardrails, and measure the Lean portfolio performance, participants will also prepare for the exam to become a certified SAFe® 5 Lean Portfolio Manager (LPM).

A multi-tiered organization that is made of multiple departments with different business units often finds it difficult to align to a common business vision. With each portfolio driving to a different result and with benefits often vaguely defined and not measurable, it becomes difficult for the organization to steer the ship in one direction. Coupled with the fact that we live in uncertain business times and most of the legacy tools we have for managing portfolios tend to be inflexible, the role of portfolio management becomes tenuous.

Lean Portfolio Management focuses on collaboration between three essential portfolios that are Strategy and investment funding, Agile portfolio operations and Lean governance to ensure that the right investments are allocated to building the right things and the organization is able to meet its business objectives. This results in the following benefits:

  • Happier employees, reduced turnover
  • Higher productivity
  • Continuous improvement and agility in team and program levels
  • More frequent releases
  • Reduced defects and better quality
  • Improved ecosystem relationships
  • Understand new tools for portfolio management
  • Rapidly scale adoption of Agile in the business
  • Become highly valued in the industry
  • Apply LPM to financial, technical, and business contexts
  • Improve governance and business outcomes
