About the Webinar:
Ryma's Aug 26th webinar was presented by Donald McNaughton. Many have talked about Product Management being a Team Sport. Other's indicate it's a cross-functional effort including members of Marketing, Development, Strategy, Engineering, Services, Support, Operations, and so forth.
Few have attempted to integrate the various activities of these organizations into one corporate wide product initiative. Even fewer have succeeded.
Donald articulated the business value of an Integrated Product Management effort, and identified common issues preventing success. He shared with us some of his approaches and explained why he recommends particular methods over others. At the end of the day, have you ever wondered if there was a better way? You know whole organizations aren't plotting against you, but maybe there are days when it seems like it? If so, this is a presentation for you.
