Product Management Reviews and Assessments

We’ve been doing product management for over 25 years. One thing we’ve learned is that the management of products is done very differently from business to business.

The way product responsibilities are split between teams varies and what’s best practice depends on a number of things … your development approach, types of products and lifecycle stage … also your market conditions and the size of your business.

This makes it difficult to know if what your doing is good, bad or indifferent.

We can help

Our Product Management Assessment is a structured review of your product management. The output is a set of practical recommendations to answer questions such as:

  • Are we set up right?
  • Have our people got the skills they need?
  • What training do we need?
  • What tools and processes should we have?
  • Are we using best practice?

We use various proprietary tools to investigate product management at your company, analyse our findings and make our recommendations.

“Following our session last week with Product Focus we were delighted with the result. Your consultant hit the ground running to gather information on the business by speaking to the relevant parties. Their knowledge on the industry and context was like they worked within our business. They had a very engaging style which helped the team to be open … there was the right mix of high level overview, specifics and practical suggestions, tools and frameworks to implement the improvements we had identified.”  Head of Business Strategy, UK Healthcare

Our Approach

We start by scoping out the assessment so we both understand what will be covered, the timescales, costs and deliverables. The focus and level of detail is set by you.

All our assessments are undertaken by senior Product Focus consultants and the high-level process is shown below.


Why Product Focus?

  • Our experience. We have worked with hundreds of companies and thousands of product managers. We know what works and what doesn’t.
  • Our proprietary tools. Through our research and experience we have developed a set of tools that allow us to quickly pinpoint common issues and their solutions.
  • Our database of past assessments. An invaluable resource used by our consultants for insights and best practice.
  • Our annual industry survey. Another resource for our consultants that allows comparison against the industry norm.
  • Our practical approach. As independent and impartial experts we make sure we give you practical and useful recommendations that will have a big impact in your business.

A great course delivered by a dynamic and knowledgeable expert with real world industry experience. I believe regardless of their experience level anyone would learn something new. Best investment I have made for my team and business this year.
Phil Hornby - Head of Product Management Platforms, Diagnostics and Services, Continental
Please do everything you can to leave your day jobs at the door and fully engage in this course. I did it in September and can honestly say it is the most useful training I’ve done in my career.
Will North - Product Management Director, Callcredit (Will attended a Public Course then arranged Private Training for his team)
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned so much more than I expected! I've recommended you to a number of colleagues. The templates on the USB stick are proving extremely useful.
Andrew Sayle - Product Focus Certified Product Manager, Zen Internet
The course was superb and we’ve had excellent feedback from the team. Everyone learned – regardless of their history, experience or accountability level in the team.
Paresh Patel - Head of Product Management for Managed Mobility and Security, Vodafone Global Enterprise
Product Focus has delivered everything we were looking for from a partner and I am really pleased with the training feedback. We have valued enormously their advice, flexibility and professionalism.
Jennie Brown - International Learning & Development Director, CDK Global
6 months on - I think your product management course must have been the most valuable course of my career so far. I have used much of the material on the USB key and your analogy of being the CEO of the product really helps.
Ellie Ryan - Product Manager, Thomson Reuters
Overall very good and very useful. It helped me with the foundations, core and structure of my role and I look forward to getting back into the office to use my new skills.
Gavin Murphy - Product Manager, KCOM
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
Many thanks again for an excellent, informative and interesting course. As I mentioned on Friday I will certainly be sending any new product managers to you as and when they come on board!
Paul Prior - Sysnet Global Solutions
