Product innovation in large organisations requires an approach which takes the best from "creative" and "control" skills domains. Very large product portfolios must be managed digitally via a well structured product catalog, with rich product attributes and good governance and processes. We are often asked these questions:
- How do you approach production innovation and development, in particular how do create innovation in large organisations, e.g., separate vs. embedded, agile vs. waterfall, external vs. internal?
- How should you structure your products and packages?
- At what level should pricing be carried out?
- What are the best practices for product information management?
- How do you establish different perspectives on a product catalog, e.g., customer, internal, finance?
