Catherine’s Roundtable: People, Strategy and Delivery
Our roundtable discussion will follow the theme of our presentation across people, strategy and delivery. North Highland and Sainsburys have faced into a challenge of excessive business cases that encourage inflated CapEx requests and have misaligned stakeholder expectations through inaccurate success criteria. Our new model focuses on a slimmed down lean canvas investment paper that outlines Experiment, MVP build and Feature Build stages with flexibility within these stages. The paper is further enabled through a Product Council model that features better collaboration between the business, finance and digital & technology and communicates to stakeholders through a visible portfolio Kanban featuring the lean canvas’.
