The product team ultimately determines the success of your product or portfolio of products. Strong strategic understanding coupled with focused execution combine to make a powerful product team, and this is managed by what we refer to as the Product Office.
It is often the case that delivery teams receive a lot of attention within organizations while product ownership often falls by the wayside. Product ownership might be absent altogether or constrained to an overworked individual with little authority to respond to emergent needs. Working from pre-agreed requirements, they can unfortunately become little more than order takers, unsure of why they are delivering the features they have been instructed to deliver.
This lack of context, lack of customer focus, and lack of finesse can have a negative trickledown effect. As a result, product ownership is often out of step with what the delivery team(s) can deliver and what end users and customers really need. The environment and unique challenges delivery teams face coupled with wow-ing customers with products that drive engagement and loyalty are often misunderstood.
Our consulting team has a deep appreciation for product delivery. We work with product teams in many industries and specialize in digital product discovery and validation. Our goal is to help create a dynamic Product Office that is customer-driven, able to validate features rapidly, and identify and deliver on agreed strategic objectives.
Powerful product teams can help keep your team aligned and delivering, allowing for customers to drive your engagement in meaningful ways.
