Service-oriented companies often find it difficult to instil a product mindset in their teams. On the other hand, product-centric thinking within product companies can lead to big challenges as digital products are becoming commodities. This session will offer insights about the personal challenges encountered along the way when transitioning from a services mindset to a product mindset and beyond.
