Prominent Product Executive Teams Up with Dragonboat to Bring Portfolio Management to Outcome Focused CPOs and Their Teams
We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Melissa Perri to our advisory board. Melissa is the world-renowned product leadership expert and author of Escaping the Build Trap. She is CEO of Produx Labs, a Product Management training organization, and a Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School teaching Product Management in the MBA program.
Melissa has extensive experience working with product leaders and their teams to develop best-in-class product processes and strategies. She has created two online schools:
- Product Institute, a scientific approach to Product Management with over 3500 students, and
- The CPO Accelerator, which specializes in growing product leaders into Chief Product Officers.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Melissa to our advisory board. Melissa has been a key driving force for growing great product leaders. She has helped numerous companies effectively scale their product organizations. Her strategic insights and broad experience building world-class companies and teams will be invaluable for our next chapter of growth.”– Becky Flint, CEO of Dragonboat
Product-centric companies are focused on enabling product teams to drive business outcomes. As more enterprises turn digital, the shift from product strategy being built in a silo to product driving company strategy has become unstoppable
“One trend I’m seeing is the need for great product management to drive business success in organizations. For that to succeed, we need to align goals and measure outcomes at both the team and exec levels. Dragonboat’s portfolio planning tool fills this gap, allowing executives and team members to see that level of insight and adjust allocation and priorities responsively. Dragonboat is the best tool I’ve seen that connects the moving pieces from the exec to feature teams level, tying work back to goals and outcomes.”– Melissa Perri,CEO of Produx Labs
This announcement comes on the heels of Dragonboat’s $12 million Series A funding round, led by Insight Partners. Dragonboat will deploy the funding to accelerate growth, product development, and its mission of helping all teams achieve the best product portfolio outcomes.
