STRIVING FOR SUCCESS
The desire to establish a product management culture starts at the top. It is often triggered by a new leadership team, change of control or an understanding by executives that growth cannot be sustained without it. Culture starts with people but process unites their activities.
Whether your product team is large or small, you have a limited amount of resources. You must be thoughtful in choosing what product ideas and features to pursue and which to let fall by the wayside. Our consulting team can help you to align your processes, decision-making, and priorities to support your organizational needs by providing the necessary tools and training your team needs to stay on the road to success.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Product portfolio management
If your organization supports multiple products, it is critical that appropriate care and analysis be given to the allocation of resources. We’ll help you determine how best to distribute staff, time, money and other limited resources in an efficient manner.
Product strategy and product road mapping
Every product must have its own specific strategy assigned that is in alignment with the overall product strategy and overarching business goals. As part of a holistic product management process we will help you develop effective product strategies that are aligned to your organizations product roadmap. Product roadmaps illustrate identified and prioritized investment opportunities. They serve to keep internal and external stakeholders informed of your pending activities. They are also frequently misused leading to a wide range of communication and credibility issues for you and your organization. Getting it right is important.
Ask any product development team and they will tell you a common problem they face is all stakeholders believe that their product requirements/improvements are the most urgent! High performing product teams realize that each requirement must be reviewed and ranked according to its impact on the overall product strategy and an organization’s company goals. Our excellent requirements prioritization frameworks will ensure that everyone on the team agrees on what is most important and understands that is where the highest focus will be placed.
A successful product management team must be able to adapt and adjust to unforeseen obstacles, demands, and setbacks that can occur at any point in the development cycle. Changes are inevitable. We’ll help your organization establish a strong product management process with the necessary discipline to measure success.
