Shorten your investment funding cycles with PPM and SAFe - 1 PDU
Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant
About this talk
Unconstrained customer requirements combined with technology disrupters in the cloud, big data, analytics, social and mobile is the new norm for businesses in the App Economy. With rapidly changing technologies fostered by transformation and competitive threats, product and application lifecycles are shortened creating the need for changes in how development work is funded and executed on. To shorten these life cycles, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)® describes the transformational patterns -from project based funding and control to Lean-Agile budgeting and self-managing Agile Release Trains.
Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant, will examine how established strategic themes guide the enterprise investments and strategy for the relevant Agile and traditional waterfall programs. Richard will highlight the need to fund and monitor value streams and teams as organizations move away from top down budgeting to Lean-Agile budgeting. The key take ways for this session are:
•Value streams not projects should be identified, fostered, funded, monitored and continuously improved
•PPM needs to fulfill the investment funding responsibilities for both Agile and traditional waterfall programs during this period of transformation
•Value stream insights utilizing KPIs are required from a portfolio and life-cycle context
This event qualifies for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU credit).
