Aligning strategy with execution
Radtac are still running all scheduled and on-site training as planned. For further information please see our policy here.
On Tuesday 3rd March 2020, Scaled Agile announced it would allow requests for remote course delivery for on-site (private) courses only. While we strongly believe in person interactive collaborative training experiences are far superior to remote training, we understand that challenging times call for different approaches. We would ask anyone who would like to make a request for private course via remote delivery to contact our team on +44 (0) 203-811-0424 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll register your interest and continue to follow advice from official channels to make sensible decisions on remote delivery.

Participants also explore methods to establish portfolio flow with the Portfolio Kanban and prioritize initiatives for maximum economic benefit. The course also provides insights on how to establish Value Stream Budgets and Lean Budget Guardrails and measure the Lean portfolio performance
