Value-Driven Portfolio Management (VDPM) is a new perspective on Portfolio Management. The focus is on continuously maximizing the total return of the portfolio. This also distinguishes VDPM from other Portfolio Management models that focus much more on managing solutions.
Would you like your organization to be more customer-centric and agile? VDPM can be a catalyst for the transformation. VDPM increases customer focus and makes it easier to make choices, making an organization more agile.
Erik Bras and Richard de Rijke have developed the VDPM training at Schiphol Group and ING. From now on, the training is open to everyone. This is a unique opportunity to get acquainted with a new effective way of Portfolio Management, richly illustrated with practical experience.
VDPM is focused on maximizing value for the customer, organization, and employee. Instead of doing as many projects as possible, you periodically evaluate which values are most important to work on and which portfolio of solutions is the most valuable use of the available resources. Value is not only expressed in money, but also in terms such as quality, speed, user-friendliness, effectiveness, and durability. As a methodology, VDPM helps to identify and prioritize the most important values for customers. It then describes how the organization arrives at solutions through multidisciplinary teams that directly contribute to improving these customer values.
In practice, companies focus too much on managing solutions and too little on the value these solutions deliver. While that value is essential and determines whether your company is successful or not. After all, the customer is not interested in the solutions offered, but in the value delivered by means of these solutions. With VDPM, the focus is precisely on managing that value. Once it is clear which value is most important to the customers, you can determine which solutions fit best.
The VDPM Framework consists of Value Management, which is mainly aimed at giving direction to the organization, and Value Delivery, which is mainly aimed at delivering value by executive teams. This makes this training interesting for management and management layers as well as for the executive teams. It provides a clear insight into who is responsible for what and how everyone works together to deliver maximum value for the customer, organization, and employees.
“The Value-Driven Portfolio Management training exceeded my expectations! I can heartily recommend it to Agile professionals who are looking for more in-depth knowledge and innovative methods in the field of Agile portfolio management. Richard and Erik are enthusiastic and know a great deal about their training to create a nice mix of working methods, which have captivated me from start to finish and have brought me a lot. The well-substantiated and experience-based content and methods are, in my opinion, valuable, inspiring, and well-applicable.”
“Instructive two days, gave me a lot of energy. Participants were involved in the right way by also linking personal experience to theory.”
“This training gives you tools to do it yourself, instead of thinking about how others should do something. Pragmatic and value-driven without immediately taking a solution as a basis.”
In this 2-day training, you will learn everything about VDPM. The VDPM Training consists of both theory and exercises. You will learn the theoretical framework, the VDPM Manifesto containing the principles behind value-driven portfolio management, and the VDPM Maturity model that you can use when implementing VDPM. You will also work in small groups to put the theory into practice. You will learn the basic skills needed to get VDPM working. Finally, there is sufficient time in this training to discuss your own situation. Together with colleagues, you will look for suitable answers that VDPM offers. You will learn from our skilled trainers, from their practice, and from each other.
The course lasts 2 days and has a maximum of 16 participants. After this course, you can start working full of energy to deliver maximum value for your customer, organization, and employees through value-driven portfolio management.

(Translated by Google) Once had an in-house training for Product Owner and the VDPM training at Scrum Academy. Both great workouts. Good balance between theory and practice and always room to bring in and discuss your own cases. Can be applied directly in practice, so provides immediate value! (Original) Eenmaal een in-house training gehad voor Product Owner en de training VDPM bij Scrum Academy. Beiden super trainingen. Goede balans tussen theorie en praktijk en ook altijd ruimte om eigen cases in te brengen en te bespreken. Direct toe te passen in praktijk, dus levert direct value!
(Translated by Google) Not perfect, but good. Product Owner I followed training. This was one of the more expensive providers, but small scale so worth the money. The training consisted of two days and the trainers worked in pairs. The second trainer added little on the first day. He was an old top athlete or something who mainly seemed to have the task of filling out flip charts and getting things ready. On the second day there was another second trainer who had much more practical experience and really added value. It was a pity that this added value was not offered on both days. Everything else neatly arranged. (Original) Niet perfect, wel goed. Product Owner I training gevolgd. Dit was een van de duurdere aanbieders, maar kleinschalig dus het geld waard. De training bestond uit twee dagen en de trainers werkten in duo's. De tweede trainer voegde op de eerste dag weinig toe. Hij was een oud topsporter ofzo die vooral als taak leek te hebben flip-overs invullen en dingen klaarzetten. Op de tweede dag was er een andere tweede trainer die veel meer praktijkervaring had en echt een meerwaarde had. Het was jammer dat die meerwaarde niet alle twee de dagen geboden werd. Verder alles keurig geregeld.
(Translated by Google) Participated in the Product Owner 1 training to full satisfaction. Great location + trainers. The topics covered are also relevant and useful. Definitely recommend. (Original) Deelgenomen aan de Product Owner 1 training naar volle tevredenheid. Prima locatie + trainers. Ook de behandelde onderwerpen zijn relevant en nuttig. Zeker aan te raden.
(Translated by Google) The SAFe training was very instructive. I thought it was a healthy combination of theory and practice. No lesson where you go through slides of a PowerPoint presentation, but the PowerPoint slide is converted and real-time assignments. As a result, the theory really stuck and you also know how you can apply SAFe in practice. Thank you very much Roy and Remco! (Original) De SAFe training was erg leerzaam. Ik vond het een gezonde combinatie tussen de theorie en praktijk. Geen les waarbij je slides van een PowerPoint presentatie doorloop, maar de PowerPoint slide worden omgezet en real-time opdrachten. Hierdoor bleef de theorie ook echt hangen en weet je ook hoe je SAFe concreet kan toepassen in de praktijk. Super bedankt Roy en Remco!
