The miscommunication and misunderstanding of your products and delivery capabilities lead to:

  • Unrealistic product roadmaps and commitments
  • No clear ownership of product growth and success
  • Low-level and technical product decisions that take too long to make

Standardized product families and well understood product objectives help:

  • Define the role product owners and managers play in the ownership and coordination of product initiatives.
  • Develop achievable and justified product roadmaps using insights of business priorities, delivery capabilities, and resource capacities.
  • Redefine and optimize product management and delivery capabilities to better support product and business demands.
