Applying Scaled Portfolio Kanban

“What are our teams working on?” “How well does our execution match up with our stated strategy?” “Are we as an organization efficient, effective and predictable?” Leaders across most organizations want to know the answers to these questions.

This workshop is for anyone who has asked these questions or wants to help the organization find the answer to these questions.

You will gain greater visibility into what team(s) across the organization are working on and what is in the way of getting value delivered.
