Portfolio Management is one of the topics that we get a lot of questions about. And indeed: it is a subject that has to be addressed during the journey to a flexible and responsive organization. In this session we are tackling the management of inflow into your Product Development Portfolio. We will show you concrete examples of how other organizations are handling this. We will discuss common pitfalls and concrete situations that are encountered frequently.
- Managing inflow is essential for focus and for maintaining the flow of value delivery
- Managing inflow means making (hard) choices
- Trying to please all stakeholders will decrease stakeholder satisfaction
Why should you attend?
After this webinar you will have an understanding of the impact of making choices, focus, and “saying No” on flexibility and the flow of value delivery. Moreover, you will get some practical examples how this has been practiced at other organizations.
