Digital leaders running large portfolios of digital products need to deliver immediate value to end users and the organisation.

These portfolios can consist of multiple digital products, all at very different stages, from very early discovery to established live and scaled services. At any stage of the product development lifecycle, there’s a risk that each individual product in your pipeline could become blocked.

This could be because:

  • you don’t have the capacity or capability within your in-house team
  • you can’t provide new and innovative solutions due to inflexible legacy technology
  • stakeholders resist user-centred approaches, hindering uptake and scalability across your organisation

These are just a few examples of the many potential problems which could ultimately result in your entire product portfolio stalling. Failing to deliver value to either your users or the organisation is a digital team’s worst nightmare.

How can this be avoided?

Join us on Wednesday 7th December for this online event where digital leaders will share stories and experiences of when they’ve faced a stalled portfolio of products, the blockers they’ve experienced and the approaches, including the tools and techniques, used to overcome these challenges.

These are real life accounts from the frontline including successes, failures, warning signs and lessons learned for attendees to take away to apply in their own organisation.
