Each year Actuation Consulting conducts a global study of product team performance which examines the dynamics of high performing product teams. This year’s study was sponsored by 13 different organizations the majority of which are professional associations spanning the spectrum (product management, project and program management, user experience, etc.). This broad support makes the study truly unique. Join us to learn more about the findings from this year’s study and the implications for your product team.

About The Study of Product Team Performance, 2013
In early 2013, AIPMM, IPMA, IIBA Chicagoland, PDMA, and Planbox sponsored a global study of product team performance which was developed and conducted by Actuation Consulting and Enterprise Agility. The survey examined the interactions of Product Managers, Project Managers, Program Managers, Business Analysts, User Experience Professionals, Engineers and others actively involved in product development projects.
The goal of our research is to continuously improve our understanding of why some product teams excel while others struggle and to, once again, clarify the factors that influence the optimal outcomes.
What makes this survey so unique is the support it receives from a growing collection of industry associations and market players – groups that generally don’t collaborate. In fact, the industry participation increased significantly this
year; associations spanning product, project, business analysis, user experience, software, and information areas all supported this year’s effort.
