Consulting

 

I help leaders improve performance, accelerate growth, increase competitive differentiation, and get great products to market in a hurry. I do this by providing an objective view into your business, and partnering with you to diagnose root causes, recommend solutions, and help implement them.

  • Create compelling products within shorter design cycles

  • Increase the win rate in a competitive market

  • Develop a product roadmap to maximize profitability while supporting company strategies

 

WHAT YOU WILL GAIN

  • Reduced risk to your business

  • More accurate scheduling and planning

  • Maintaining or improving quality and service levels

  • Decreased fixed costs

  • Faster time to market

 

WHAT I DO

These are just a few examples from my work. They highlight specific activities and not the full range of my work over the years.

 

NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

I help your business develop exciting new, and compelling products. In this capacity, I will take a holistic view of your markets’ needs and addressable market size, product concepts, your firm’s capabilities, and its areas for improvement.

 

This service will include the following, and potentially, much more:

  • Evaluation of your market approach

  • Sales and customer training plans

  • Competitive review

  • Strategic fit into the larger company operations

  • Time to market

 

PRODUCT STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

I work with leaders to develop realizable product strategies that support and strengthen the strategy of the whole organization. I will look at the business as a whole, identify gaps in product and organizational capabilities, and work with you to develop means to improve results.

 

Some of the areas I will address are:

  • Creation of product strategies that compliment company strategy

  • Capability gap analysis

  • Product capability review

  • Competitive landscape analysis

  • Long-term roadmap review and development

 

PRODUCT LAUNCH IMPROVEMENT

I’ve found that there is usually no silver bullet to solving product launch problems. This investigation of product development and launch activities will help determine methods of reducing development time and cost while improving financial results in your organization.

 

Some benefits from these projects are:

  • Reduced cycle times for new products

  • Better competitive positioning

  • Improved alignment between marketing, sales, and engineering

  • Reduced risk

  • More nimble product development

 

ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING PARTNER SELECTION

I help clients identify and select engineering and/or manufacturing firms that can be used to bolster their current capabilities or as part of an outsourcing program.

 

Some benefits from these projects are:

  • Decreased time-to-market

  • Increased breadth of products

  • Better competitive positioning

  • Improved product development productivity

  • Lower costs–higher margins
