How management promotes business agility with Lean Portfolio Management

Bystronic’s Management Committee has recognized that enabling business agility is the responsibility of the Executive Board and cannot be delegated to the operational level. In mid-2019, Bystronic therefore started to replace the annual static product roadmap planning of the five competence centers with a company-wide, transparent and agile Lean Portfolio Management (LPM). At the heart of this is the creation of value for current and future customers, focused on the fields of action defined in the corporate strategy.

In this presentation, we share our experiences in implementing LPM. We talk about how the culture of collaboration is changing at all levels of the organization and how more intensive cross-functional collaboration enables innovations that address real customer problems.
