From Project to Product: Unlocking Product Agility

February 23, 2021 | 8:00 AM PT | 11:00 AM ET

Adherence to time, budget, and scope has been the gold standard measure of project success since the beginning of time. Most of the time we are super happy if we even get two of those! Now, as the digital world shifts from thinking in fixed-time period projects to ongoing product efforts with associated teams, markets, and horizons, adherence to time, budget, and scope has little do with the actual success of an initiative.

In this talk, Anne Steiner, VP of Product and Technology at Cprime, talks about the challenges and advantages companies and teams unlock when they apply product thinking over project thinking. We’ll explore topics like team formation, budgeting and planning, and reducing cycle times in order to fuel continuous product learning. You’ll be challenged to think beyond traditional project management norms and to elevate the delivery of value as the gold standard for success.

This event is part of Agile 20 Reflect Festival, a global community-led agile event.
