Lean Portfolio Management

SAFe® Lean Portfolio Management

Aligning strategy with execution,

Create a culture of innovation, flexibility, and speed where all people in the portfolio can effectively execute as one, unified team.

​This training is On-Line and is Blended Training, with the latest video and collaboration tools and with two very experienced SAFe teachers. Everything is kept together on our e-learning platform. As SPCT Gold partner and part of the SPCT community, we have together with Scaled Agile developed an approach with four main blocks of teaching on 4-4.5h. On top of that, we have added preparation and certification support meetings before and after the training and homework in between. This all in all is guaranteeing the quality Scaled Agile is requiring and we then take it to one level above as well.
