Organizations and products are failing at an alarmingly high rate in today’s economy. It is more important than ever that organizations are able to implement their strategy as effectively as possible. Studies done by PMI show that organizations who are effective at implementing strategy use projects. But this is not the full story, for an organization to achieve its strategic objectives, they need great products. This webinar will introduce the strategy implementation circle showing the role of project and products in support an organization in implementing strategy. The webinar will highlight the need for organizations to use an iterative approach to product development and project execution. The relationship between products and projects and product owners and project managers will be explored in an iterative environment that focuses on delivering products that add value to customers.
