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

In this course, you will gain the practical tools and techniques necessary to implement the Lean Portfolio Management functions of Strategy and Investment Funding, Agile Portfolio Operations, and Lean Governance.

You will have the opportunity to capture the current and future state of the portfolio with the Portfolio Canvas tool and identify important business initiatives for achieving the future state. You’ll be able to establish portfolio flow with the Portfolio Kanban and prioritise initiatives for maximum economic benefit. The course also provides insights on how to establish Value Stream Budgets and Lean Budget Guardrails and measure the Lean portfolio performance.

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.

Very pleased to have passed my SAFe® 5 Lean Portfolio Management exam and receiving my LPM certification this weekend.

It was great to learn how the Scaled Agile Framework supports and aligns Strategy with Execution and how to apply Lean and System Thinking approaches to strategy and investment funding.

Special thanks to Em Campbell-Pretty & Adrienne Wilson from Pretty Agile for their guidance and real world examples in what was a very educational and fun learning experience.

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
