Project to Product Workshop

Help transform your organizations way of thinking from a "Project" mindset to a "Product" one to unlock your Agile potential.

As more and more companies progress along their paths to digital transformation and embracing agility, there is a common pattern of obstacles that continue to present themselves. Many of these obstacles revolve around the legacy structure of a project and how the business is instrumented to plan, fund, and manage in a legacy project model.

 In this one-day workshop, we seek to understand and eliminate these obstacles by helping organizations rearchitect their ways of working away from “project thinking” to “product thinking.” As part of this we’ll take a deep dive into how “work” is defined, prioritized, and funding. In fact, we won’t call it “work” anymore as we shift our focus from what jobs we have to do to what outcomes and impacts we wish to deliver for our customers, our market, and our business.

 This workshop provides an overview of Project to Product and then digs into three core areas of focus:

  • Product Development Lifecycle (Process), Product-Based Approach, Mean-Time to Pivot (MTTP)
  • Persistent Product Teams and Total Product Ownership
  • Planning and Product Horizons
  • Product-Based Funding
  • From Project Management to Product Management
  • Measuring Value Delivered to Customers, the Market, and the Business

Attendees leave with an understanding and a sketch of a path forward for guiding this change within their own companies.
