"The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" of Product Development

For many of you Global Product Development (GPD) might seem interesting and appealing. And luckily many companies are both developing & selling software in a mogul industry nowadays. But that’s only the bright side of things. When we deepdive in GPD and turn to the dark side we can adress things like; complex productportfolios, offshoring, and not invented here syndrome.

Over the past 10 years Roy has been leading international product development teams. During his talk he will share all his experiences: "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly".
