Developing and launching a new product to market requiring a rapid development cycle, strategy support, UX design and customer testing all in close client collaboration.
Developing a new product requires a skill set specific to that project. With this in mind, Headforwards creates the core team in close partnership with clients. A typical team might contain at least 2 dedicated software engineers, an Agile facilitator and a Product Owner or Product Manager.
A Product Owner works closely with a client to translate their strategy into a roadmap and prioritised backlog items, based on business value. A Product Manager is also able to explore the product strategy, value proposition and customer testing as well as clarifying risks and assumptions.
With tightly-crafted teams for every client, everyone builds strong relationships with each other. It makes the challenges easier to overcome, and the successes even bigger.
Once the core team is up and running, Headforwards’ structure allows for other skills and experience to be brought in to support and augment the project if required. This might simply be extra capacity or for a specialist task, such as UX design.
The delivery framework, from project initiation and planning through to closure, will be created bespoke for the team.
- Team created and hired in close partnership with client
- Product strategy experience means key assumptions and risks can be explored first creating an on-going innovation cycle
- Product development cycle created bespoke to demands of GTM strategy
- Dedicated technical team can be supported and augmented by other skills and experience
This client-focused approach makes working with Headforwards as attractive to CTOs and CIOs in corporations and organisations as it is to entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Our principles and values stay the same no matter how a client chooses to work with us.
