Webinar Posted; Roles in Product Team Performance

This IPMA webinar served participants from over 20 countries; see the recorded version here on the IPMA website. See how Product and Project Managers work together for success. Do you know the best ways for Project Managers and Product Managers to improve their interactions in developing new products? Have you seen cases where the two disciplines work together well? Have you seen cases where they do not?

In the recently-completed global Study of Product Team Performance, 2012, only 12% of organizations report that their product development projects are completed on time, on scope, and on budget. This webinar covered how your organization can become more successful in bringing together project managers and product managers to deliver products to your market.

asapm and IPMA hosted this session with Greg Geracie, President of Actuation Consulting, adjunct professor at DePaul University, and author of the global best seller Take Charge Product Management. Greg will examine key factors that improve or impede product team performance. Greg shared a range of findings from the 2012 study, conducted by Actuation Consulting and Enterprise Agility. He disclosed key insights based on responses from project managers, product managers, program managers, business analysts, and other members of core product development teams.
