People and Strategy

  • Building the winning team (Janus Boye): Does your team have what it takes? In true peer group style, you will launch straight into an honest conversation about what it really takes to build a winning team. Examine the strengths and weaknesses of your team and what it takes to make it a winning one.
  • Going from company strategy to an actionable product roadmap (Katrine Sundbye): “Firm direction, flexible approach” is Katrine's philosophy when it comes to digital product development. Here you will explore how product roadmaps can help us to close the gap between high level business strategy and what gets implemented.
  • Fostering a culture for innovation (Katrine Sundbye): Innovation is high on the agenda for corporations today. But how does various types of innovation influence business results, and how can we foster a culture that fuels innovation? You will explore these questions and test out a tool that helps you map current and desired culture in an organisation.
  • Business development towards predictable revenue (Janus Boye): If you prefer whale hunting, that is OK. However, in this Wednesday closing session, we will take a different approach by looking to systematically build a business development function that delivers predictable revenue.
