As technology has become more and more important to businesses of every kind, software product management has grown in demand. I’m a certified product manager through Pragmatic Marketing and I have served as a product manager for multiple IBM products over the years. If you’re not sure whether you need any consulting on product management, ask yourself these questions:
- Is your business highly dependent on custom software? Whether the software is being developed by your internal team or by a vendor to your specifications, you are responsible for how it works. I can help you make sure that you are spending your resources wisely.
- Are you sure that the software solves the problem that you have? I am experienced in lean development, a technique that quickly determines whether software meets its business purpose, before you’ve spent a lot of time developing the wrong thing.
- Is your technology team moving fast enough? I am an expert in agile development techniques, which streamline software development processes and place them under the control of the business team, so software is created, tested, and put to use faster than with older approaches.
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might need my help. As an IBM Distinguished Engineer, I regularly have turned around poorly-performing software projects and helped the existing team reach new levels of success. I hope to put my technical and business experience at IBM and with my clients to work for you, too.
