The survey is open from January 15th through March 3rd.
Each year Actuation Consulting and Enterprise Agility undertake a global study of product team performance. This is the second year of our study and the amount of industry interest and participation continues to increase. Let me give you an example.
This year we doubled the amount of professional associations, vendors, and promotional partners supporting the survey.
The study is designed to closely examine the factors the improve or impede product team performance. Undertaking a study of this nature requires that we work hard all year round to develop a wide array of relationships that help support the goals of the study.
This year our sponsors include:
– The Association of International Product Management and Marketing
– The International Institute of Business Analysis’s Chicagoland Chapter (IIBA)
– The International Project Management Association (IPMA)
– The Product Development and Management Association’s Chicagoland Chapter (PDMA)
– And Planbox (a provider of Agile project management software)
In addition to our sponsors, we also enjoy the support of a wide variety of promotional partners. These include: the Chicago Product Management Association and PCamp, Global Product Management Talk, Lee Lambert of the Lambert Consulting Group, Orange County Product Managers, the Project Management Institute’s Chicago Chapter, the ProjectTimes, Product Management Talk, the Silicon Valley Product Management Association (SVPMA), the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), and the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA).
As you can see our ever expanding list of partners encompass product management, project and program management, user experience, business analysts, development managers and engineers. Wait a second, where do you cover development managers and engineers you ask?
We’re fortunate to have added Ron Lichty co-author of Managing the Unmanageable as the newest co-author of our study. Ron joins author Steven Starke, David Heidt, and I as the primary drivers of the study. Since joining our team, Ron has been working to ensure active participation from engineers and development managers. I want to take this moment to publicly welcome Ron!
So, as we enter our second year of conducting this study we now have all the core roles covered and we anticipate increasing last years level of participation significantly. Please take a moment and share your thoughts with us. We want to hear from you and learn more about the effectiveness of your product team!
The study findings will be made widely available through all of our sponsors and promotional partners and at Actuation Consulting’s website. You can download a free copy of last years findings by clicking here.
