Sharpening Product Management

Continuous improvement is vital. Only the most adaptive survive and succeed. Sharpening Product Management service not only helps you clarify what product management does and does not do, but it also helps you reach your goals. Read below what this service includes and how it might fit your situation.

Typical situations, in which Sharpening would help:

  • We did a strategic pivot. Does this change how we create our product?

  • Sales and Marketing want a product that is easier to sell.

  • We are putting out bush fires. We have no time to improve how we work.

  • How do we select the right things to the roadmap?

  • R&D would like to better understand our customers’ needs.

  • How could we measure the success of our product management?

  • Competition ahead. How do we differentiate?


More desirable product. Happy customers. Better top line and bottom line.

Implementation methods:
