Bring predictable success to product innovation

Facts

  • A lot of companies are unable to truly innovate and create new products or product categories.
  • A lot of new products fail. The largest cause of failure is building products that nobody wants to buy.
  • A lot of companies can do much better in terms of customer acquisition, retention, and monetization.
  • A lot of teams struggle to find the right features to build into their products.

Motivation

Revolutionize the way products are conceived, built, and marketed today.

I established Product Success® to work with entrepreneurs and business leaders dissatisfied with their current product performance and innovation efforts; who want to create predictably successful new products and services.

Customer JTBD Drives Strategy Customer JTBD Drives Strategy

The “jobs” based design process uncovers what customers really want, and most importantly, why they want it. Specific actionable insights not only help build and market game-changing, profitable, disruptive innovations, but also save millions of dollars that would be lost on failed ideas and unnecessary features.

Product Leadership

Led and managed multiple product teams, acting as principal product owner and innovation strategist. Served as first member of several teams, recruiting, managing, and establishing team practices, processes, and structure.

Thought Leadership

Established the Product Success® Framework after experiencing both highs and lows of product management and innovation strategy. I approach every project with an integrated and unique perspective, and by asking (lots of) tough questions.
