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.
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 training is relevant for management as well as development teams.

(Translated by Google) In the meantime, I followed Scrum Master, Product Owner, VDPM and Agile Coach training courses at Scrum Academy. Chosen 4 times for a reason. The last one was Agile Coach in June 2023. And big compliments; I left the training with more energy than I went into. Not only in terms of knowledge, but the structure of the training was also so good that it gave you energy. I have seen 0 PowerPoint slides, everything very clear and directly applicable in practice.
