Businesses are increasingly focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) – realizing that multiple perspectives can be more profitable when building products and services. However, DEI initiatives often translate to addressing the needs of marginalized groups whose members are immediately identifiable while underserving invisible groups like LGBTQ+, religions, people with mental health issues &/or disabilities, to name just a few.

We all want successful projects. Projects that not only deliver a product on time, on budget, and on scope, but also value to customers. This webinar will start with defining value creation and value delivery to make a thriving business model and a happy customer. Then we will explore the two main ways that a product or service can offer value to customers. The first way is value creation, to ensure that the product has the features that customers need, and they see value in. To do this, we will discuss prioritization techniques to ensure the highest priority features are delivered first, for every release. The second way is value delivery, through value stream mapping and waste elimination while developing a product. As a project manager, you need to understand where waste is created and look for ways to eliminate it in your project management processes. Lean processes combined with strong value delivery approaches will help your organization become successful in the long term.
