How to Achieve Speed-to-Market for New Digital Products



Most companies are accustomed to thinking digital transformation in terms of 2- and 3-year plans. But in the current environment, that’s unrealistic: transformation means actually putting new products into the market now, to meet customer needs and to drive revenue.

In just two weeks, Vistaprint‘s overhauled its supply chain and launched a line of reusable masks for both adults and children —with a slick new e-commerce platform— to quickly help people protect themselves and each other. In addition, 10% of proceeds go to helping small businesses impacted by Covid-19.

In this session, Vistaprint CMO Ricky Engelberg and their digital product partner Work & Co will discuss what it took to ship a new e-commerce site in less than three weeks. They’ll also share learnings about building consensus rapidly among senior leaders, and how to use real-time collaborative tools — from Figma to Slack — to help close feedback loops and get to launch fast.
