Portfolio mapping requires taking an end-to-end view of the life-cycle of initiatives in your organization, but using the same strategy, practices, and processes across the entire portfolio will result in negative outcomes and results. Barry O’Reilly explores how the world’s largest organizations develop better strategies, information gathering, and decision making across their portfolios to drive improved business results and customer satisfaction.

Drawing on real-world examples, Barry traces successful strategies across four main domains, explaining why thriving companies:

  • Explore early-stage initiatives with high degrees of uncertainty that are bets for the future.
  • Exploit initiatives that have achieved product-market fit and that the organization wants to grow and scale.
  • Sustain initiatives that have become repeatable and scalable business models, products, or services that drive the majority of revenue for the organization.
  • Retire initiatives that are long lived or no longer beneficial (or even limiting) to the organization’s future success or strategy. Initiatives that do not achieve desired outcomes in any domain should be killed and their investment transferred to other initiatives.

By the end of this webcast, you’ll understand why and how high-performance organizations focus on building capability to continuously move initiatives through the model from Explore to Retire.

Getting Started with Lean Software Development

This reference card will get you started with Lean Software Development. You’ll get information from industry experts including the seven principles of Lean Software Development.

Lean Software Development is an outgrowth of the larger Lean movement that includes areas such as manufacturing, supply chain management, product development, and back-office operations. Its goal is the same: deliver value to the customer more quickly by eliminating waste and improving quality. Though software development differs from the manufacturing context in which Lean was born, it draws on many of the same principles.
