How Drew Jemilo’s Caffeine-Driven “Brilliant Moment” Turned Into Portfolio Management in SAFe 4.0

Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention and so it was that, in 2009, SAFe Fellow Drew Jemilo invented the starter material for portfolio management approach now found in SAFe 4.0. With only one night and “lots of coffee”, Drew managed to piece together a workshop based on Dean Leffingwell’s architectural portfolio management material. Over the years, Drew and his colleagues at Scaled Agile have much opportunity and learnings with which to improve the material, and today he provides a rough sketch of it to Agile Amped and you, our viewers!
