In total, 79 features we’re brought to the table of which 33 were slated for Project Accelerator Plus+. The next task was to go through those 33 features and prioritize them based on business priorities and effort required. To insure we delivered a product that was inline with what the partners wanted I created a Partner Plus+ “Advisory Board” consisting of 15 Citrix Partners and conducted bi-weekly sessions. This lasted for 6 months.
It quickly became apparent what features Project Accelerator Plus+ needed to have for it to be successful, so after each advisory board meeting, I would spike the features discussed in the meeting and have them ready for review during the next meeting.
