Product Innovation

Product Innovation

What is the problem?

Markets are changing at an increasing rate driving organisations to deliver new ways of satisfying customer needs. At the same time, our products are becoming more complex and harder to maintain as they transition from launch to scale and then maturity.

Innovation is an essential capability, but one that doesn’t come easy.

The Brainmates Solution

At Brainmates we use a best practice Product Management Framework that integrates the needs of the customer and the strategy of the business. Using Customer Centred Design techniques, we help you to better understand who your customers are and what problems they’re willing to pay to have solved.

We bring together the best aspects of Agile development, Lean Startup, and customer development methods. We can help you deliver outcomes to your marketplace sooner, driving financial results or just getting faster feedback from customers.

How can we help you?

  • Consulting – We will work with your team directly
  • Facilitation – We will facilitate clear time-bound outcomes

Building Product Management Capability

Product Management Capability

What is the problem?

As a Product Leader, it’s your job to build the capability of your team. This lifts the team’s ability to deliver business outcomes, with the added side-benefit that learning opportunities are a great retention tool.

But how do Product Managers develop skills and capabilities for the job? Traditionally this has been through on-the-job experience and gut feel.

Unfortunately, this approach rarely covers the full range of Product Management skills, knowledge and behaviours required to do the job well.

The Brainmates Solution

Brainmates provides training and career development solutions that build on the experience you already have and close gaps in areas that haven’t yet been developed.

These solutions include face to face training covering all the basics, as well as master classes diving deep into specific capabilities and techniques. The facilitators of these courses are practicing specialists with many years of experience.

Beyond courses, Brainmates also provides one-on-one coaching to individuals or facilitated custom workshops for experiential group learning.

How can we help you?

  • Training Courses – We have open courses that are available to anyone or we can run private courses for groups sizes or 6 people or more.
  • Facilitation – We will work with your team to achieve clear outcomes in a time limited environment.
  • Coaching – working one to one with a Brainmates coach can help individuals confidentially develop their strengths and mitigate their weaknesses to deliver better outcomes for the business.

Develop the Product Management Community

Product Management Community

What is the problem?

It is very easy to feel alone as a Product Manager. Your challenges are unique to you, your company, your product, and the marketplace you operate in. Who can you turn to for help and understanding?

Other parts of the business have their own communities or professional organisations, but traditionally Product Managers lacked a forum to share their experiences and to collaborate.

The Brainmates Solution

Brainmates has been bringing product people together since 2007 when we ran our first Product Management community gathering.

Since then Brainmates has run Meetups in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Singapore with a collective online community of more than 1000 product people.

We started Product Camp Sydney and Product Camp Melbourne. And most recently we organised the Leading the Product Conference in Sydney and Melbourne to bring more than 500 Product professionals together, to network and learn from local and international speakers, as well as each other.

Brainmates has always been passionate about creating a focal point for the Product Management community, to bring people together, to share stories, and to continuously support and learn from each other.
