How we help

Assessment & Advice

We help companies tilt the product development playing field: to discover, nurture and speed up the delivery of value.

We seed change in your organisation by first engaging with your leadership and teams to understand your context and the outcomes that matter for you. Only then do we help you to study the system, collecting and analysing from a number of key perspectives: the value delivered, the flow of work, and the speed of critical feedback loops.

Together we then help you design a set of initial steps to get started on a journey to discover better ways of working.

The Farmyards

We help you bring your best ideas to life – and quickly discover the Black Swans

Need to quickly develop or test an idea or concept? The Farmyard is for you.

We’ll help you to understand the problem and test potential solutions – improving your chances of discovering product-market fit. We have kick-ass development teams in London, San Francisco and other slightly more exotic places with all the skills to quickly develop products and services that users will love.

Training & Workshops

We help you to learn and grow by showing you better ways to approach product development.

Our training and workshop events are designed for people who are leading product development work: Product Managers, Product Owners and Project Managers. We teach new skills that will help your teams discover, nurture and speed up the delivery of value.

Is a month of delay worth one million dollars or one thousand dollars? Approximately 85 percent of product developers cannot answer this simple question.

Six things you should expect of a modern PMO
