  • Some product management experience recommended, no other skills or tools needed.


In the last two decades, we’ve observed a puzzling paradox – great product managers exist at both market-leading and market-losing companies. So what else does it take to build a high-performing product organization that propels companies up and away? What’s the secret sauce beyond having the best talent and great product craft?

The answer is – Responsive Portfolio Product Management

What is Responsive Product Portfolio Management?

Responsive Product Portfolio Management (“Responsive PPM”) is a framework for outcome-driven organizations. It dynamically connects objectives, customers' needs, products, and resources with execution, to accelerate outcomes responsive to the state of the organization and the market.

In contrast to the Traditional Project Portfolio Management which focuses on a basket of projects and centralized governance; Responsive PPM focuses on continuously evolving products, allowing portfolio leaders to adapt and adjust in real-time to best deliver customer delight and business outcomes.

Why Responsive Product Portfolio Management?

All product organizations, regardless of size, need to achieve multiple goals and delight multiple customer segments over multiple time frames.

A Responsive Portfolio approach enables product teams and product organizations to make data-based multidimensional product decisions and re-balance the portfolio over time to continuously achieve the best overall outcome.
