Is it possible to stay innovative and economically manage many hundreds or even thousands of products or product variants?

Organisations interested in benefiting from a product line and product platform approach must adopt values and organisational principles that encourage the development of deep domain expertise. This includes a deep understanding of the forces that continuously change the environment of the product line. These forces can then be harnessed as part of the architectural foundation for the product line.

The pervasive digitisation of services and the desire to create and operate platforms that can support large digital service ecosystems that include many organisations, have put the spotlight on design principles for product lines, product platforms, and related organisational structures.

Jorn will explore how to achieve substantial gains in overall productivity and quality across the life cycle of portfolios of products and services.

Jorn Bettin is a Partner at S23M. He loves building and working with high-performance teams. Jorn works with top-level subject matter experts and transdisciplinary teams to uncover and activate deep domain knowledge.

He is a co-author of a number of books on model driven product line engineering, promotes open innovation via the quarterly CIIC unconference, and has worked in methodology leadership roles at IBM in the 1990s.
