Existing company and leadership culture can undermine product teams:

  • Proxy product owners have no real authority.
  • Delivery teams without product management are probably not prioritizing the items that have the highest alignment to enterprise goals.
  • Without understanding the fundamentals of product management and delivery, even the best intentions can degrade team performance.

Start your product transition with the right alignment:

  • Understand the foundations for successful product management and product delivery.
  • Commit to empowering product teams and building effective product families.
  • Become an enabler of Agile culture and embrace business agility.
