Why You Should Attend!

Every so often new products deliver brilliance. Yet, millions of 'me-too' products are launched each year devoid of any real innovation. What's happening? To achieve product success, teams must keep the risk vs. reward trade-off in mind during the entire development process. 

Engineers are usually focused squarely on Risk retirement, leaving the Product Manager responsible for keeping eyes on the Reward. KPI's are excellent tools for focusing teams and organizations on both sides of the equation. Watching the wrong metrics will have your team viewing the world through a rearview mirror, potentially hindering innovation. 

Argyle Executive Forum, in partnership with Jama, is bringing together leading IT executives from a variety of industries to discuss top trends, opportunities and challenges encountered at our 2018 CIO Breakfast: Benchmarking Success - Analytics, KPIs and Metrics for Innovation Management. Join us for breakfast to discuss: 

  • Framework for crafting metrics which keep innovation front and center 
  • Lessons learned from teams who focused too heavily on risk, at the expense of innovation 
  • Tools for creating forward looking metrics and KPIs which lead teams towards product success
