CIOs shifting to digital software delivery often perpetuate “bossy,” top-down project and performance management techniques that are unsuited to the fluid, fast-moving digital world. Instead, they should foster a “servant leadership” approach to improving lean, self-organizing and diverse teams.

Discussion Topics:

  • Why you should shift the focus of your organization’s delivery model
  • How to flatten the management hierarchy
  • How to reform performance management processes to emphasize team accountability and skills diversity

For some companies, building analytics themselves is the right decision.

For others, buying from a third party makes the most sense.

The equation seems simple. If you have a development staff then you should build yourself but if you need to get to market buying a solution might make more sense.

What Nat Venkataraman (LinkedIn profile) & Michael McLaughlin (LinkedIn profile) found in talking with thousands of prospects is that the calculus is far more complex.

In this webinar Michael & Nat will discuss:

  • What questions should I ask to decide if I should build or buy?
  • How does UI/UX development factor in to my decision?
  • What do I give up when I build or buy?
  • How does the decision impact my developers?
