Are you facing these challenges?

  • Maintaining strategic alignment whilst scaling
  • The more we scale the more complex our dependencies become
  • The complexity and overhead of resource management increases as we scale
  • Governance, Risk and Control is ever more challenging as we scale
  • The bigger we get the longer it takes to get anything done
  • We are unable to change direction quickly due to our size
  • Balancing BAU with strategic work, planned vs unplanned work

The Portfolio Kanban workshop tackles these issues providing you with practical takeaways enabling you to scale your software development capabilities.
