Read Our Reviews

Our Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) training course provides guidance and tools to help executives, Project Management Officers (PMOs), and other key stakeholders align their organization's strategy with execution. Using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), our SAFe LPM approach empowers teams to collaborate across silos, organize around value, and adapt to customers' needs faster.

At our SAFe LPM training course, you'll learn how to establish Lean budgets and guardrails, connect portfolio strategy and initiatives to the agility planning and execution of work, and maintain portfolio vision and roadmap. Our SAFe Practice Consultants will provide practical knowledge to help you manage flow and solve perpetual overload. You'll also learn how to fund and govern dynamically, ensuring that your organization can remain agile and adapt to changes in the market.

Our SAFe LPM training course answers the most common questions that executives, PMOs, and other stakeholders have about managing portfolios:

  • How do I connect strategy to execution?
  • How do I manage flow and solve perpetual overload?
  • How can I fund and govern dynamically?

We also include the one-day "Getting Started with LPM" workshop on day three to guide your team's preparation for your LPM kick-off event.

Following the overwhelming success of our online SAFe Lean Portfolio Management training, we plan to continue to offer public training online to make it accessible to our clients around Australia and across the globe. You can learn about our approach to remote SAFe training here.

SAFe LPM was a great course for deepening understanding of portfolio level and how work makes it through to teams. If you're interested in the upstream view of work before agile squads start delivering on it, then I recommend it. I found it compliments the Leading SAFe course very nicely. And of course, it was great to have Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson as our guides over the three days. Their real-world experience helped bring the textbook to life.

A big "Thank you!" to Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson for the great coaching, instruction and accommodation - as always! Pretty Agile was able to support my learning goals through offering the virtual SAFe Lean Portfolio Management training (while they were in Australia) - an opportunity I was able to seize. I live in North America (Central time) and was able to alter my work schedule to take the course during the U.S. evening hours. Highly recommend Pretty Agile training. #tribalunity
