SAFe Lean Portfolio Management Certification | LPM Certification | LPM Exam Training

Earn your SAFe Lean Portfolio Management certification (LPM certification). Take the Lean Portfolio Management training (LPM training) course to prepare for the SAFe for Architects exam (LPM exam) with BTII Institute, a top-rated training industry leader with highly experienced instructors. BTII Institute is an early adopter of Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe), the #1 framework for scaling Agile.

Description

This is a two-day interactive course that includes an additional one-day Getting Started with LPM workshop. In this course, attendees 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.

 

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.

The Lean Portfolio Management course helps executives, project management officers (PMOs) and other key stakeholders plan dynamically and be flexible enough to adjust initiatives and budgets as the market changes. The LPM course provides the guidance and tools attendees need to work effectively in remote environments with distributed teams. You’ll learn how to connect portfolio strategy and initiatives to the agility planning and execution of work, how to integrate feedback from participatory budgeting, and how to adapt to change while maintaining your funding vision and roadmap.
