Project & Product Management Consultation

Project & Product Management Consultation

Don’t have a budget or capacity for hiring a full-time project/program manager and/or product manager for your project?

No stress.

We can take up factional (or even full-time if you need it) roles for the duration you require and give you complete coverage for Project, Program and Product Management.

Here is how:

Product Management

  • Planning (Product Vision & Strategy)
    Product Vision

    We assist you in clearly defining your product vision in alignment with your company mission. We learn about your customers and what you wish to accomplish on behalf of them. We understand the problem space using the JTBD framework to derive key high-level customer outcomes.

    Product Strategy

    We then help you formulate the product strategy by clearly outlining the product outcomes using the OKR framework. The opportunities are then devised and prioritized culminating in an overall product strategy.

  • Execution (Product Discovery and Product Delivery)

    We fill an interim Product Management role via continuously driving product discovery and product delivery processes at your organization. As we go along, we work on refining your product discovery and product delivery tools and techniques.

    Product Discovery

    We engage with your technical and design teams to drive product discovery. We continuously tackle prioritized opportunities and discover solutions for them via iterative experimentation. We finalize solutions to build via working on minimizing value risk, usability risk, viability risk and business risk by running.

    Product Delivery

    In parallel, we drive the delivery process with your delivery team for the solutions that come out of the product discovery. We play the role of a product owner and work on delivering these solutions, preferably in an agile fashion.

Project\Program Management

We work with you to decide the project management approach. Waterfall? Agile? or a mix of both(hybrid)?

We then work out a suitable project management methodology based on your organization strategy and constraints and then execute it with your engineering team.

Waterfall Project Management

We take ownership of all the project management phases listed below and work with your engineering team in the capacity of a project manager. We ensure that project outputs are delivered within the specified time and budget constraints.

Project Initiation
  • Conduct Feasibility Study

  • Identify Scope

  • Identify Deliverables

  • Identify Stakeholders

  • Develop Business Case

  • Develop an SOW and Project Charter

Project Planning
  • Create a Project Plan (WBS etc).

  • Identify key project processes.

  • Estimate Budgets

  • Gathering resources (RACI)

  • Anticipating Risks

  • Conduct Project Kick-Off

Project Execution
  • Organize workflows and assign tasks.

  • Regularly communicate with stakeholders and team members

  • Monitor the quality of work.

  • Manage risks, timeline and budget

Project Closure
  • Analyzing project performance

  • Analyzing team performance

  • Documenting project closure

  • Conducting post-implementation reviews

  • Accounting for used/unused budget

Agile Project Management using Scrum Framework.

We assume the role of a scrum master and product owner in your cross-functional Scrum team to ensure strong collaboration between the business and Scrum team so that it can adapt to the changing requirements.

We ensure to deliver a potentially shippable product increment regularly while managing changing requirements with stockholders and track progress via maintaining Scrum artefacts and conducting timely scrum ceremonies with the team.

Hybrid Project Management

As much as they want to be nimble enough to adapt to the changing business environment, executive stakeholders also want to ensure that teams are moving in the right direction while being aware of the organizational and high-level project risks and constraints.

What this essentially means is taking the best of both the Agile and waterfall worlds and come up with a suitable methodology for the project.

We look at the current project and organizational constraints and try to optimize the agile: waterfall ratio to best suit your needs. It typically involves figuring out how much information we can comfortably settle upfront for the execution to stay agile but still have the certainty afforded by upfront budgeting and scheduling.

One example could be defining high-level milestones and defining a WBS upfront. Each milestone is broken down into phases. And phases are broken down into agile sprints. Each sprint outcome directs the next sprint. This in turn directs a phase and finally a milestone.
