Presentation Overview

The maturity of the information age and the exponential growth of the digital world has accelerated human development like never seen before. The proliferation of data, learning capability, and access to the world's knowledge at the top of the fingers have made it possible that any person can build the next big thing with time, discipline, and a little bit of luck.


This data availability has diminished the power that information (IP) used to have when companies wanted to stay ahead of the competition. Protecting the companies’ secret product recipe has been replaced by companies’ capabilities of being agile and nimble, delivering solutions to customers' problems fast and ahead of the competition.


The speed of software delivery is essential in today’s fast-paced world, business success largely depends on the ability of a company’s IT organization to deliver services fast. This need for speed combined with technological advances created an environment where business organizations must deal with complexity levels far beyond anyone's expectations.


This presentation will focus on how Mastercard, and more specifically Technical Program Managers, overcome challenges related to today’s complexity in the tech world. Specifically, the complexity around software architecture, and how the project's dependency management is crucial to today's software delivery. The complexity around project roles and functions, and how people's interactions management plays a key role during the decision-making process. And the complexity around the project's information, and how a knowledge management system saves substantial time and effort.
