I run a training & consultancy company, AHVC where we help first-time founders and first-hire Product Managers learn Product Management methodologies that drive business growth. We don't use growth hacking or paid ads but rather Product Management methods to build products customers love and retain them too.

Typical questions I help answer include:

  • What is Product Management?
  • How do Product Managers fit within my organisation, given my products are complex?
  • How does a Product Manager differ from a Project Manager?
  • When do you hire a Product Manager and what would you look for in a great one?

Product Management when done effectively should lead to cost savings AND revenue uplift as Product Discovery helps you find the right things to build, whilst Product Delivery is about building things right!
