The Portfolio, Pipeline and Platform Management Workshop drills deep into these interrelated topics, with particular emphasis on how organizations build capability and gain notable benefits quickly. This continually updated workshop offers the most significant learning experience available focused on product development pipeline, portfolio and platform management. It specifically addresses the means by which organizations greatly and rapidly improve the strategic impact from and efficiency of their NPD efforts.

Some key learnings:

      • How to overcome too many projects entering an already full pipeline
      • Applying best practices for deploying and improving portfolio, pipeline and platform management
      • Aligning strategic mix-management with resource throughput-management
      • Leveraging a SpiralUpTM Implementation for fast gains
      • Engaging top management for sustained “buy-in” and participation
      • Utilizing top tools and practices for portfolio, pipeline and platform management
      • Understanding the issues and tremendous opportunities presented by software support systems
      • How leading organizations integrate project management and portfolio management into a seamless system
      • Amplifying NPD output by integrating front-end activities with portfolio, pipeline and platform management
      • The most important influences on ‘data quality’ and why this is so critical
      • Identifying and leveraging Product Platforms for maximum gains
      • Discovering “Portfolio Optimization” and how leading companies do it
