Radus Consultants have been helping clients with Portfolio, Program and Project Management Services and Strategic Planning for over a decade. Our Consultants have worked with thought leaders like James Martin in identifying Value Streams and Value Chains and were very excited to see the use of these principles in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®)
