|Today’s world is offering fantastic opportunities for most products. Your offer can expand in many different dimensions like: segments, applications, repositioning in the ecosystem, virtualization, servicification, productification, professional services, analytics etc. there really is no limit.|
The IoT (Internet of Things) is connecting products with products truly drives the market. All companies see potential in exploring new business arenas with connected product. But it is not just about the connectivity. It is about application development, redesigning the business model. Finding new ways of pricing and billing. Using the data in smart ways.
All too often we see companies trying to do too much. Overambition is killing or stopping many products and projects. Smart ways of entering market are now emerging. Many of them based on Smart Collaboration Strategies. The future of the networked society is about collaboration not competition. But most of us have wasted time in unfruitful cooperation and partnerships. We need to find ways of collaboration. We need to find ways in defining success in collaboration. At school many of us studied Porter and Competitive Strategies. But I never had a course in collaboration.
That is why the Tolpagorni fall conference on 23rd of Nov is about COLLABORATION & ECOSYSTEM STRATEGIES.
Product management is the perfect intersection for defining, establishing and managing partnerships. A partnership has as many dimensions as a product. Technology, strategy, architecture, commercial, sales and marketing. Enabling us to leverage Product management skills into the collaboration.
We have already started the work in defining success in partnerships. Success in ecosystem management. And we are eager to share our thoughts, learn from the best and build knowledge together with You at the Tolpagorni fall Conference 2017 about COLLABORATION & ECOSYSTEM STRATEGIES
