Improve the predictability of product success
What is one of the most important things for organizations? What is one of the most important things for portfolio managers and product managers? The answer is: understand your market, understand your customers, understand the challenges and deliver a product that meets the needs of the market. A product developed with market needs as a foundation, will have a much better success ratio than a product that is a technology push. To get here, organizations need to create an environment and a platform where collaboration, communication, transparency and governance can take place. This way organizations will be able to find the balance between market pull and technology push and handle market-centric innovation in an effective way.
