Two webinars about this study are available here at the IPMA site.
In early 2012, IPMA, asapm, and a range of other not-for-profit and other organizations worked together with Actuation Consulting and Enterprise Agility to host a survey on the interactions of Project Managers, Program Managers, Product Managers, Business Analysts and others involved with new product development projects. The survey findings were so interesting, that while the final results were being compiled, we hosted two webinars that explored the insights and opportunities uncovered in the study (see the webinars here at the IPMA website).
From the Whitepaper’s Executive Summary
Actuation Consulting and Enterprise Agility recently conducted a global survey of product teams. The goal of our research was to better understand the dynamics of product team performance and to uncover the practices that make these teams successful.
What makes this survey unique is that it enjoys the support of various industry associations and market players — groups and individuals that don’t generally work together…
Specifically, we found that there are five key factors that are common to high-performing product teams. The statistics show just how important these five factors are: the likelihood of a product team performing at a high level is 67% if all five factors are in place. In their absence, the likelihood of a product team achieving high performance is only 2%!
This paper details these five factors and offers suggestions for how you can apply them to your own product development practices.
