SAFe® Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) Course

Aligning Strategy with Execution using the Scaled Agile Framework.

SAFe® Lean Portfolio Management Certification

Aligning strategy with execution is critical to any organization’s success and a key aspect of Scaled Agile Framework®. With a Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) approach, you can collaborate across silos, empower teams, and organize around value to adapt to what customers want, faster.
