    When we moved to a dual-track delivery approach for our Bank of New Zealand Digital product teams, it felt more like Dueling tracks. People knew why we were doing it but were confused about how to link discovery and delivery. Who should do what, when and how? It became a clash of collective egos, stepping on each other’s areas of expertise. This is about how we brought clarity, alignment and direction to those teams by creating a Product Management playbook and how it had a profound effect on how we work and communicate with one other.

    Case Study

    Being a start-up we are discovering new business models and experimenting new client behaviour. Our platform is a B2B insurance digital platform which redefines customer experiences of an Insurance retailer / broker. Having 7 paying customers, now all of us are spending time with client on boarding and removing blockers related to legal, contracts and procurements process. We thought we are smart in having a separate team to focus on new discovery / new ideas so that our creative juices keep flowing in the midst of all the chaos of client on- boarding etc.. but this turned us into dysfunctional discovery - delivery teams, we started becoming silo organisations one focusing on discovery and other focusing on delivery.

    This case study is about how we experimented a dual track model to regain our agility in experimentation and discovery.
