YOur product market fit Roadmap
Strategic Advisor on GTM and PMF Journey
I'll help you fill gaps on your team(s) to help you understand and solve your customers’ pain points with the power of data, analytics/ML/AI -- regardless of where you are on your data journey. I'll guide you every step of the way, from the strategy on how to get started -- to mentoring your team on the execution -- to help your company make data-driven decisions in real-time (for the first time and the next time).
Depending on the business goals you'd like to see accomplished, we'll tailor advice to your business needs and your customers, to help your company grow; this includes:
Advising (executive) team(s) on product and business strategy, roadmap, scope and priorities, to identify highest-impact, lowest-hanging fruit for data-centered products/features.
Helping you identify your customers' pain points, advising on ways to solve them while aligning customer and product incentives, to help you improve your market fit.
Your customers come first. Guiding you to uncover your "white hot" customer center -- and how to keep them coming back again and again.
You can't get insights from data you didn't collect. We'll collaborate to fill gaps in your data strategy to make better data-driven decisions.
Mentoring and/or filling gaps on your team(s), as they execute against the roadmap to help the company make decisions in real-time with the highest ROI.
While we won't collect the data for you, we'll partner with you to help you make actionable next steps to improve your product, to solve customer pain points with market fit.
