We have worked with many companies in the Aerospace and Defense industries.
These include aircraft and sub-system manufacturers, as well as providers of defense products.
Some of the product management issues we have seen include:
- Introducing a product culture and minimizing the amount of customization necessary to secure contracts
- Deployment, support contracts, and product lifecycles that outlast most employees
- Market insight work made tougher than other industries because of the secretive nature of some customers and products
- The importance of product quality, requirement traceability, and risk management
Many companies have run private on-site training courses for their teams. This has helped establish a common way of working and addressed specific issues. Others have sent delegates to our public courses where they get a chance to learn with peers from other industries.
