I guide product leaders to build and grow successful products at scale

Challenges you’re facing

Understanding market dynamics and big vendor constraints

You’ve read the analyst reports, but you need guidance from somebody who has already developed successful products. Building the case for internal investment and managing internal and external stakeholders more effectively isn’t simple.

High-level market trends hold no mysteries for you. You’re searching for deep insights into the start-up and scale-up scene in Europe in order to select the best partners.

Developing an innovation-driven sales strategy

Your broadening product portfolio isn’t given the attention it deserves by your sales force. Encouraging sales and marketing teams to champion your newest solutions requires a new perspective and an innovation-driven approach

Effectively scaling your business

Your several thousand customers are demanding. Managing their expectations while balancing innovation initiatives and technical debt management - and keeping your product managers focused - is the key to avoiding failure. Another important question: to acquire, or not to acquire?

Access the know-how you need ...

  • to communicate effectively with organizations in your field

  • to build a viable acquisition and post-acquisition strategy
  • to build a powerful internal business case

  • to gain a candid overview of your strengths and weaknesses

Strategy day

Traditional strategy days with analysts serve a purpose, but it’s nearly impossible to be truly candid about your weaknesses when the goal is to impress your audience. Mine is a different kind of strategy day during which I challenge you directly in a risk-free way, fully dedicating my expertise to helping you build better products.
