PPM best practices: From project to product, demand management and beyond

The old world of PPM — focused on compliance and risk aversion — is in the midst of fundamental change, disrupted by new practices, roles, competencies and technologies that digital business demands.

We’ll help you focus on vital next steps: transitioning from project management to product management, aligning the efforts of your PPM team with the strategies and goals of the business, and creating a culture capable of shared thinking and collaboration.

You’ll return to the office knowing what it takes to deliver real PPM value to your organization.
