We have worked with a huge range of companies developing software products for enterprises. Typically these companies have a strong focus on product management. Developing high-quality enterprise-grade software, product customization and handling technical debt are key issues.
The challenges we see depend on many factors including the size of target customers, company structure and development approach. Common challenges include:-
- Maturing the product management role to become more leading and strategic within the business
- Maximizing the value of agile development in a business managed in a waterfall way
- Getting the balance right between bespoke customer work and the efficiencies of a product-based approach
Many companies have run private on-site training courses for their teams. This has helped them to establish a common way of working and address specific issues. Others have sent participants to our public courses where they get a chance to learn with peers from other industries.

“I’ve used other companies for product management training in the past but this was the best I’ve seen – I and everyone in my team rated the course as ‘excellent’.”
Simon Witkiss Product Director, IRIS Software Group
“Excellent course, wish I’d done this a year ago when I started as a PM. It would’ve changed my view on leaving product management, but decision already made!”
Cheryl Paterson Product Manager, Allocate Software
“We recently used Product Focus to deliver some excellent bespoke training to our Product and Marketing team and the feedback was really great – thank you!”
