Projects-to-Products...and Everything In-Between

By Brian Nathanson posted 10-01-2019 12:43 PM

Our customers and industry analysts agree that the time has come to make the transition from "projects" to "products" -- but many organizations seem to be struggling with how to get started or what to do. This blog is to discuss key success factors of our own project-to-product transition to provide insights into what might be confusing or challenging to your organization. 

This blog will only be as interesting as your feedback. We will (attempt to) post once each business day and want to hear your comments/feedback/questions. If you find this valuable, please take a few minutes each day to contribute. Ask questions, suggest improvements, or just chime in to "agree" or "disagree."
