The Boston Product Management Association meeting on Thursday April 15 will feature: Product Management through a Project Management / Case Study Approach presented by Suruchi Sharma: Charles River Associates
Learn to utilize strategic frameworks to tackle business problems. Suruchi Sharma, a Sr Associate with Charles River Associates, will show how to use strategic frameworks to tackle business problems. The first case will be a presentation to demonstrate the CRA methodology. Then the group will break into smaller groups to discuss and present proposed solutions to two more cases. Case topics are:
International Market Expansion
Gross Margin Profitability analysis
Management consultants bring several different aspects to a business engagement – an unbiased view of the business, an analytical approach, a structured methodology, and finally, recommendations grounded in data rather than ‘gut-feel’. With these cases, Suruchi will provide examples of all of the above in real business situations. While there is no one solution framework that fits all problems, the discussion of some of these engagements will introduce methodologies that drive management professionals to use a data-driven, analytical approach to identify and optimize future growth opportunities.
Learning points…How to take a project-like approach to specific business problems, and laying out a structured methodology to solve them.
