SponsoredShifting from Project to Product: 3 key success metrics to support leaders to make the change

Speaking with: Mia Horrigan – Enterprise Agile Coach and Partner for Digital Transformation, Program and Services Delivery, Zen Ex Machina
$1.4T will be spent on business transformations in 2022, but over 50% struggle and don’t deliver their expected results. The shift from project to product is a key factor that has often been overlooked. With 30% of companies now making the change to break IT and business silos to focus on product management, how do you take this next step in enterprise agility without repeating the failures of the past?

Matthew and Mia will look at ZXM’s research from over 100 companies and the key actions taken by leaders making the shift. They will examine the main differences between project and product management and what it takes to increase your business composability – a critical factor for achieving business transformation success.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand product thinking and develop a clear path from project to product.
  • Apply product goals, Agile OKRs, and use the cycle of product inspection and adaptation.
  • Measure your transformation compared to others and keep it on track with 3 key success metrics.
