We'll tackle how to:

  • Achieve a shared belief in product strategy that helps your team/stakeholders support and execute your vision.
  • Create alignment within a dynamic web of competing stakeholder priorities, manage undefined problems in a fast-paced, uncertain, and competitive environment.
  • Address potential political saboteurs and build a coalition with shared norms, language, and processes.
  • Get leadership commitment to your product, sustain delivery, navigate rapidly changing corporate priorities.
  • Build an influential coalition through a compelling product story and a credible road map
  • Cultivate a product culture of cross-functional teams with shared beliefs of their role in your customer's world.
  • Coach your team to identify and amplify the voice of priority users vs. more vocal users.
  • Help leaders (senior and junior) understand the mutual “self-interested” benefits of your product's success.
  • Model how different stakeholders would act based on their beliefs about the product, business, and market.
  • Implement clear communication, task-to-vision alignment and empowered decision-making delegation
  • Avoid dev teams that do not work well together, confused stakeholders interrupting momentum, customer use cases focused on symptoms and not "the real problem," lackluster user adoption, etc.
  • Avoid decelerating momentum, resources wasted on non-value-adding activities, stalled decision making, and cultural friction between misaligned factions.
