TIME & EXPERIENCE
You’re wearing an army of hats right now: Major Manager, Lieutenant Leader, Brigadier Business and Captain Corporate – and here comes another – Private Product Development.
You have an amazing team that has your processes and deliverables licked, but experience says that they are somewhat internally focused and lack strategic skillset to innovate.
Your peers are too busy running their own organizations and if you are in a highly siloed organization you probably have a healthy competition amongst you to find the holy grail.
Industry consultants and solution consultants don’t understand the complex association environment. You’ll spend so much time explain the environment to them, you may as well do the project yourself.
You basically need to increase your bandwidth with someone who has experience like you and brings product development skills. There’s not many of them floating about.
