Meet Customer Needs Through Greater Collaboration
The first step in any digital transformation initiative must be a dedicated effort to truly understand the needs of the customer. According to the Standish Group, 64 percent of features in an average organization application are “rarely” or “never” used. That means that almost two-thirds of all development time, costs and resources are wasted on features that were never needed by the customer. So how do you ensure you are creating features that your customers actually want and will use? By placing the customer at the forefront of development and transitioning to products with value streams.
Goodbye, Project Management.
Hello, Product Management.
To provide the best customer experience, you must transition your teams into the Product journey, rather than follow the traditional Project Management practices. Why? By better understanding the problem space, you can create optimized products faster, cheaper and focused on two key things: the customer and quality. Product Management focuses on customer value rather than stringent timelines or fixed scope. In uncertain times like these, it equips firms with multiple Lean and Agile practices to stay flexible and true to the customer needs.
