PL1776B - Building Executive Support for an Effective Digital Thread Transformation

It has never been more crucial for organizations to begin the digital transformation journey for product development. Companies are facing market pressure to dramatically improve time-to-market, product and operational costs, and quality. Hot topics like Digital Thread point toward a fusion of process, technology, and talent that can deliver the game-changing outcomes needed to compete and win. Yet, there remains uncertainty about how these elements come together into a cohesive approach across the product life cycle.

In this session, you'll gain a deeper understanding of how to orchestrate a Digital Thread initiative and gain executive support for this transformation.
