Thousands of startups are moving at an incredible pace these days, creating a constantly changing competitive landscape. Silicon Valley alone has over 28,000 startups. A product can be cutting edge one day and disrupted by competitors the next one. The only way to stay ahead of your competition is to learn faster - find the next trend ahead of anyone else, execute faster and make learning and innovation part of your team culture.

We work with companies, from startups to large corporates, to help them accelerate their growth and win against their competitors.

The only way to win is to learn faster than anyone else.
— Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup

Philosophy

Our client work is defined by identifying the ideal outcome with the client before beginning work, finding a way to track progress and making sure the process is transparent.

However, we believe there is no one size fits all - our approach is always tailored to the organisation and its individual stakeholders. When identifying opportunities and underlying causes of inefficiencies, we weigh solutions off against the company's unique vision, culture and constraints.

Once a strategy is validated and in place, we occasionally help clients accelerate their product development and learning process by getting hands-on in helping them adopt new product management methodologies. This can range from growth hacking and making connections for them to enter new markets to validating concepts, overhauling product designs or salvaging IT projects that are out of control.

Tools

During our own startups, working at companies such as Atlassian and Flirtey, getting funding by Y-Combinator and Seedcamp, as well as previously consulting engagement, we have been exposed to and adopted a wide range of different tools and methodologies that can help companies grow.

A selection of the many tools we helped companies adopt include

  • Objectives & Key Results (OKR, a management framework used by Google and Atlassian)
  • ICE prioritisation
  • Jobs To Be Done
  • Mom Test customer interviews and user testing
  • Net-Promoter-Score (NPS)
  • AARRR analytics framework
  • Agile development (Kanban, SCRUM)

and many more.
