Product Excellence

Congratulations your score is:

You have a good track record of product excellence with:

  • Simple but effective development processes and tools for different categories of project. You capture best practises that have been hard won from previous developments and you make sure that they are properly deployed on future developments.
  • An empowered but cross-functional core team for undertaking every aspect of the project over its full life cycle. You create team accountability and authority to undertake the job.
  • A functional structure that willingly resources the core team including the extended team as the workload ebbs and flows. Highly trained staff are always available at the right time for projects.
  • A senior cross-functional, but decisive team that reviews each of the key phases of the project and that makes go/no-go or redirect decisions.

However, you are not so good at turning business strategy into market success with unbeatable product platforms. Often you lack the resources to fulfill your product ambitions.

What you now need to put in place is:

  • A properly balanced pipeline of projects that builds the future prosperity of the company, that out-flanks competitors and that wins market leadership. Make sure that the developments appropriately address the market, balance risk and ensure profits for today and tomorrow.
  • A company strategy that robustly translates into market, platform, product and functional plans. In the late 90s, Apple was on its knees. Now look at them, after a decade plus of strategic development chess, they’re the second most valuable company in the world.
