Creating an allocation approach is difficult in environments of increasing uncertainty and growing scale. In an organisational context, there's a tendency to default to SAFE's Lean Portfolio Management as a 'lean' response. Having managed Investment Planning in a corporate context for several years, there's an opportunity to integrate lighter, less formalised methods to categorise, prioritise & manage portfolio worktypes.

The desired outcomes are the place to start - the basis of decision-making is a bias to value.

Components of Lean Portfolio Management such as value streams & Quarterly Investment Review (QIR) can be used with more standardised portfolio planning processes.

This talk will review some of the key things to know and do to help transform your portfolio of work to enable Organisational Agility
