As we created the Product Lifecycle, we developed a range of Lean governance principles and data points by collaborating with over 20 enabling functions and understanding what is needed when by different stages of their life to support and grow a product, all of course secondary to continuously meeting the customer needs. A powerful sense-making activity for product development and strategy was to combine Cynefin with the Product Lifecycle. This helped us understand when to use Lean Startup and Agile practices and created meaningful conversation to inform working practices.
An Evening of Innovation and Growth supported by 3 inspiring thought leaders Jeremy Waite – Salesforce, Jaideep Prabhu – Cambridge Judge Business School and Jen Thompson – Google Youtube. Each speaker provided an interesting insight into Frugal Innovation, Diversity, Data, Ideation and the Technology Revolution.
Recently I was asked to share our experience and learnings with the Global Product Development Lifecycle work we are doing at Pearson at Tesco. This works focuses on bringing the company together to be more innovative at a cultural level and adopt Agile and Lean Startup principles beyond software teams.
