Every organization knows that developing new innovative product offerings and getting them to market on time and on budget is a huge feat. An even bigger challenge is ensuring the right mix of products are in the pipeline to maximize business value. All too often, portfolio, NPD teams and executives end up attempting too many projects, over-committing limited resources, and missing out on better, potentially more viable opportunities.
A clear corporate strategy, appropriate structures and business processes, an enterprise technology platform that enables the analysis of portfolio data and metrics, as well as change management to ensure adoption of the new process and technology are all pieces of how the best organizations in the world are transforming their business and maximizing their portfolio value.
At 11am EST on March 17th, Mark A. Lane, PhD, consultant at TayganPoint Consulting Group, will join up with Enterprise Portfolio Management Guru at Planisware, Jeremy J Scully, to present how to set these wheels in motion at your organization.
Join this webinar to learn how to:
– Define a clear and actionable business strategy
– Empower the organization with the right structure, PM tools, and skills to successfully deliver the strategy
– Deliver change management to ensure sustainable success
