Explore the evolution of modern management methods for operations and product development, and learn how to effectively run large-scale product development with lean-agile engineering and operations.
Modern management methods for operations and product development are rapidly changing, with each five years a new management breakthrough driving higher levels of product development and innovation. The need for exiting linear, taylorist-driven models of precision and entering approaches that optimize for learning and optionality to manage uncertainty in product discovery, design and development. These approaches to management are fundamentally different from traditional projects and more complex than simply running scrum teams. This course brings together learning from the source and explores cases that demonstrate how to effectively innovate at the speed and scale of the digital age.
