Coffee Talk: On beach in Hawaii with the Product Portfolio Mavens featuring the Spike Awards
Aloha. Last month we introduced a new video series on the Planview YouTube Channel called "Coffee Talk" -- all about the latest news and trends taking place in innovation and Product Portfolio Management (PPM). This month the "Talk" comes to you from Hawaii.
In this latest episode the Mavens, Carrie Nauyalis, NPD Solutions Marketing Manager at Planview, and Pamela Soin, Portfolio and Pipeline Management Practice Lead at Kalypso, delve again into innovation and social media tools. They kick off discussing the Harvard Business Review article, "Managing Your Innovation Portfolio" by Bansi Nagji and Geoff Tuff -- a good read as it provides food for thought around maintaining the right balance between resources and innovation. But the big question is do the mavens agree with the article's stance that applying the Stage-Gate® process to the transformational plan could be lethal? Check out the video to find out.
Keeping with their promise to inform you of events and hot topics, the Mavens also share their thoughts on the value of the upcoming SPIKE Awards. If your company uses social strategies, processes and the supporting technologies to improve innovation, product development, and product management -- or you just want to learn more about this topic -- you'll want to tune in.
And stay tuned in as the Product Pulse blog is the place for Coffee Talk episode summaries. Be sure to check back soon for "Coffee Talk" from Egypt covering Tech-Clarity's new whitepaper authored by Jim Brown titled "Meeting Fixed Product Launch Windows," the PDMA 2012 PIM reception in Orlando, market news, and PDPM chat on Twitter.
