Overview

This LPM: SAFe Lean Portfolio Management is a two-day interactive course that includes an optional one-day “Getting Started with LPM” workshop. In this course, attendees 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.
