Technical Leaders

Your Ideas Implemented

Explaining value

Clearly explaining a value proposition is a key skill; even more so when offering intangible products or services like software or consulting.

The business of software

Software companies share some unique characteristics. In this fast-changing environment, does experience really matter?

Communication

Probably the single most important success factor in business, yet many technical specialists are not good at communication. Why is this?

Software product management

Build, implement and manage software products using a structured framework.

Enterprise software

Build software products that meet the needs of the enterprise by catering for the real, practical needs of end-users when doing their jobs.

Manufacturing IT

As we enter the 4th industrial revolution, next-generation manufacturing software will drive significant new innovation.

Software Product Management

What they did not teach you about managing software products.  No high-tech, just common sense.

Clarity | Focus | Inspiration

How many entrepreneurs have built “great products” that no-one wanted?  Far too many.  The same fundamental mistakes seem to be repeated again and again.  

When product strategy fails, products fail.  Product strategy requires clarity and understanding of the real customer problems and the concept of creating value.

Software product strategy requires a strong market focused vision, combined with a highly optimised and focused execution. Both elements are critical to success.

 

The goal of Technical Leaders is to encourage entrepreneurs, consultants, product managers, business analysts, engineers and others who come from a Technical background to build and grow great businesses.  Great businesses that are agile, innovative, adaptive and that intend to disrupt the status quo.

The Information Revolution is underway!  All companies need to become digital companies. This presents both an enormous challenge and at the same time a fantastic opportunity for individuals to make a new, sustainable impact.

We don’t have all the answers.  That does not matter. Asking the right questions is more important.

When technology moves fast, the fundamentals still matter, even more so than before.
