Event description

Description

Whether you are a large enterprise or a small business, managing an innovative product development pipeline (whether it’s your first product or the development of your existing portfolio) is a resource-intensive undertaking that comes with many risks and challenges. For small businesses in particular, the challenge of “Scope Creep” is real as there are often competing demands and conflicting customer requirements as you work through iterations of the product development cycle.

Join us on March 20th to hear Scott Mikalachki discuss the 3M model of innovation, and how leveraging insights and putting the customer first is front and center in helping them maintain focus, while leveraging ALL the resources at their disposal to drive effective product development.

Please note: Breakfast Club is a TechAlliance members-only initiative.
