… but Digital Transformations can fail if they don’t establish
a strong Product Management function that focuses
on solving real customer problems.

Digital Transformation Programs do not focus on identifying and solving customer problems that benefit the business. Instead, Product Teams are treated as “feature factories”, who are focused on meeting internal needs rather than delivering products that customers love.

A common reason for product failure is thinking you know your customer but never talking to them. Most Digital Transformation Programs fail because they don’t structure organisations to identify the “Why” and “What” of the next right thing to build. They overlook real problems faced by existing and potential customers. They do little to encourage continuously identifying and solving valuable customer problems.

Product-Led Organisations significantly out-perform
those that are not Product-Led.

* Study on the performance of organisations determined as “Product-Led” vs those that are not.

A Product-Led organisation is one that aligns their business activities around the fundamentals of real customer value creation that underpin modern Product Management practices.

Product-Led does not mean that the
Product team makes all the decisions.

A Product-Led Transformation Program’s aim is to align the entire organisation to make decisions that solve problems that customers care deeply about in a way that delivers long-term benefit to the business.

Many organisations say they are “customer-first”, but they aren’t. Becoming Product-Led means turning that “goal” into a “reality”.

Brainmates partners with you to help you
deliver on the promise of Product-Led Transformation.

We have helped these companies transform to become Product-Led organisations:

Brainmates’ Product-Led Transformation Program aims to deliver 3 key benefits:

Brainmates is the right partner to help you
deliver on the promise of Product-Led Transformation.

practical, no-nonsense Product-Led
Transformation Program.

We’ve worked with Start-Ups, Scale-Ups and Enterprises since 2004 to successfully set up and enhance their Product Management practice.

We’ve worked to help deliver products with eBay, Foxtel, BeemIt, Fairfax, Mercer, Lend Lease, Cochlear, Cuscal, Northcott, Greyhound Racing Victoria and many more.

Our Product-Led Program starts by assessing your organisation to confirm if it has a Product Vision and Strategy that is aligned with the business vision and goals.
