Watch the recorded webinar and find out why so many digital products fail.

According to the data, around 9 out of 10 new IT products fail. Some of them need a lot of time to fail, and others fail at the start before even development begins. And their founders are not also aware that they make a mistake and just lost their (or their investors') money by building things that do not make any sense.

The full agenda:

  • What is wrong with a fixed scope approach?
  • Why is initial product documentation useless?
  • How much does it cost to prepare scope documentation for a product?
  • How long does it take for documentation to become obsolete?
  • The world is changing - your scope needs to change too!
  • Management Triangle explained - Fixed Scope, Fixed Budget, and Dubious Quality.
  • If not fixed scope, then what?
  • What do you need to start the product development instead of extensive product documentation?
  • How to choose the right team if not based on the price?
  • Why should you not ask for the price but instead discuss your budget and timeframe?
  • Why do speed and agility matter?
  • Introduction to the incremental and iterative development process (Scrum as an example)
