Product Evolution vs Product development – A path towards Agility with Sustainability

Track: Transparency, Inspection & Adaption
Type of Paper: Experience

Summary
Sometimes the POs/ PMs fall into the trap of developing the product directly (too quick & too soon) rather than evolving it.
So, here comes a key question – Is evolving Product more of a theoretical concept which does not holds true in real world, or, it’s too slow or is it difficult, or, does it cost much, etc.? Through our journey, we attempt to understand product evolution at multi levels:
1. Operational/Functional
2. Standardization
3. Tactical & Strategy
