Presentation

How do you improve your product team's performance?

As we propose this session, data from the 2014 Study of Product Team Performance is being analyzed, the third year that Actuation Consulting in association with leading industry associations in the product management, project management and engineering communities has conducted this study of the global factors that drive high performance product teams.

The 2012 Study revealed five practices that, if product teams do them, gives them a 67% likelihood of achieving high team performance. (Similarly, if they practice none of them, they'll have a miniscule 2% likelihood of achieving high team performance!).

The 2013 Study revealed rapid growth in the number of teams becoming agile - and fascinating insight into development methods and practices teams believe improve their products' profitability.

Study lead author Greg Geracie and co-author Ron Lichty will present key findings emerging from the 2014 global study of product team performance - as well as the 2012 study's five factors - and the 2013 study's guidance from teams on practices to improve profitability.

Join us and learn how you can improve your product team's performance!

Speaker also has a workshop at our pre-conference event Code Stars Summit Titled:   "Managing the Unmanageable 1-Day Workshop"

Ron Lichty

Ron Lichty has been managing and, more recently, consulting in managing software development and product organizations for over 25 years. Before that, as a programmer, he coded compiler code generators, was awarded patents for compression and security algorithms he designed and coded for embedded microcontroller devices, wrote two widely used programming texts, and developed the computer animation demo that Apple used to launch and sell a next-generation line of PCs. The primary focus of his consulting practice has mirrored what he did as a manager: untangling the knots in software development. As Ron Lichty Consulting, he takes on fractional Interim VP Engineering and Acting CTO roles, trains teams in scrum, transitions teams to agile, trains managers in managing software people and teams, and advises organizations and coaches teams to make their software development “hum.” His 450-page book, Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams, was recently released as video training - LiveLessons: Managing Software People and Teams - both from Pearson and on O’Reilly’s Safari Network. He also co-authors the biannual Study of Product Team Performance.
