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.
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! (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!
De training Value Driven Portfolio Management is een (zeer) nuttige toevoeging op mijn bestaande kennis en ervaring. Het denken vanuit de toegevoegde waarde, het toepassen van het Agile Manifesto in een eigen framework en de informatieve infographics zijn voor mij de belangrijkste elementen. (Translated by Google) The Value Driven Portfolio Management training is a (very) useful addition to my existing knowledge and experience. Thinking from the added value, applying the Agile Manifesto in its own framework and the informative infographics are the most important elements for me.
Geweldige leerzame training, heel interactief met instructeurs met zeer brede kennis. Heb er veel van opgestoken en kon de eerste dag na de cursus het geleerde al in praktijk brengen. (Translated by Google) Great educational training, very interactive with instructors with very broad knowledge. I learned a lot from it and was able to put what I learned into practice the first day after the course.
Ik deed de Scrum Master 1 training op locatie als ZZP'er. Het is een investering, maar zelfs met mijn eerdere scrum ervaring had ik er erg veel aan. Fijne coaches en werkvormen. Ik kreeg ook de kans mijn notitieboekje vol met vragen grotendeels beantwoord te krijgen. Binnenkomst was goed geregeld met lekkere koffie (barista!) en koek van de coffee corner in de lobby. Ik zou hen zeker aanraden. Tip: check even met hen welk niveau je hebt en welke cursus voor jou het meest geschikt is. Dan kom je met goede verwachtingen in de juiste cursus. (Translated by Google) I did the Scrum Master 1 training on location as a freelancer. It is an investment, but even with my previous scrum experience, it helped me a lot. Good coaches and working methods. I also had the chance to get my notebook full of questions answered for the most part. Entry was well organized with good coffee (barista!) and cake from the coffee corner in the lobby. I would definitely recommend them. Tip: check with them which level you have and which course is most suitable for you. Then you come to the right course with good expectations.
Leerzame training, trainers en faciliteiten uitstekend. Gemengde groep in ervaringsniveau met Scrum. Interactief. 5e ster als er iets meer zou worden ingezoomd op de theoretische basis wat mij betreft. Prima investering voor startende Scrum Masters. (Translated by Google) Educational training, trainers and facilities excellent. Mixed group in experience level with Scrum. interactive. 5th star if zoomed in a little more on the theoretical basis as far as I'm concerned. Great investment for starting Scrum Masters.
Pasgeleden de opleiding Agile Coach I gevolgd, smaakt naar meer. Bijzonder interactief, zoveel inzichten opgedaan en ook werkvormen meegekregen die ik nog niet kende. Ik had hier zowel persoonlijk als zakelijk iets aan. De eerste twee dagen zijn voornamelijk gericht op teaching, mentoring, coaching en hoe je dat doet, inclusief nog een keer een stuk basiskennis rondom agile werken en vooral hoe je dat overbrengt. De laatste dag focuste zich op agile transities binnen organisaties. Vooral die laatste smaakt naar meer, ik zou dan ook graag het vervolg gaan doen. (Translated by Google) Recently followed the Agile Coach I training, you have a taste for more. Very interactive, gained so many insights and also learned working methods that I did not know before. This benefited me both personally and professionally. The first two days are mainly focused on teaching, mentoring, coaching and how to do that, including once again a piece of basic knowledge about agile working and especially how you transfer it. The last day focused on agile transitions within organizations. The last one in particular leaves me wanting more, so I'd love to do the sequel.
Nuttige training. Deels een opfrissing en deels echt nieuwe dingen geleerd. (Translated by Google) Useful workout. Part refresher and part really new things learned.
