We know that receiving the right product, at the right moment, is incredibly satisfying (new shoes anyone?). So, whilst it is an essential part of the success of every business, but often overlooked and taken for granted, product management is a complicated discipline. We have used many years of experience in this space to craft a unique system “Prodigy” which combines best practice, collaboration and workflow to provide our clients with an essential platform upon which to base their product management process.
Prodigy is designed to be a workspace which product teams will use as part of their daily working practices. Underpinned by a clear process flow, all product managers have clarity over what they are expected to do, what the deadlines are that they need to aim for, the primary information that they are expected to incorporate into their considerations, and the system also has inbuilt warnings to ensure that targets are hit on time.
For the Product Manager, this means that they are working on a level playing field with their peers, with all objectives clearly stated and a real-time indication of how closely these are being met. Perhaps most importantly of all, this recognizes that the best product manager might not be the one with the most successful product!
For the line manager and the senior management team, Prodigy provides a comprehensive view across your entire product set. From our dashboards the management team can see where products are healthy, where the exposures are, and also track approaching deadlines to ensure that issues are flagged before they arise, rather than afterwards. Prodigy actively draws your attention to the items that are likely to be of the highest impact and concern, based on highly configurable parameters.
In addition to the core system, we provide consultancy around product management best practice, training courses to allow your teams to introduce these behaviours into their work, and full implementation support to maximise the benefits that technology brings.
