Product Direction
UXDX EMEA 2024

In this session, Harry Parkes, VP Product at OVO, explores the unique challenges of balancing growth with the structural stability required for large-scale operations, as seen through the lens of OVO's acquisition of SSE. Harry will deep dive into the strategies used to maintain agility while integrating into a more rigid established system, the advantages and challenges of sustaining product growth and proess improvement during the transition, and fitting in culturally to align with an overarching mission.

Key Highlights:

  • Navigating integration between the "speedboat team" wanting agility and the "tanker" that takes time to maneuver.
  • Overcoming the challenges of integrating a new customer base within a large business.
  • Strategies for sustaining innovation during the transition from a scale-up with a good product-market fit to a large company.
