If you don't know where you want to go, then it doesn't matter which path you take.

What's your essence?
What is the heart of your product?
Do you regularly have to do post-production rework or have difficulty navigating complicated solutions? Do you struggle with conflicting priorities and setting goals?
It's hard to prioritize when you're not clear on the core system and feedback loops.
A product review (teardown) takes a critical look at your entire system from a systems thinking and usability perspective. It identifies your unique value proposition, your strengths, and what's missing.
Using the Game Thinking framework I identify your product's core systems diagram and main feedback loop. The result is a contextual map that helps you navigate complex systems and create coherent systems rather than feature factories.

Where should you focus your effort?
What will give you the best results?
Are you a purpose driven organization that struggles with prioritization? Do you find it hard to say no to new shiny objects?
You might find a strategy proposal useful to help you take the right action to get you closer to your goal.
Sometimes an objective perspective can give you the insights and direction you're looking for. A strategy proposal takes a holistic look at your business and identify the core leverage points to help increase your impact with less effort.
Being fully immersed in the daily operations to fully understand your goal, the bigger purpose, and the available resources, I outline a strategy and tactical plan to take less action for better results.
Using a Systems Thinking approach, I map out the core feedback loops and identify the biggest bottleneck and where to focus your effort for maximum benefit and a practical solution meeting where you are with the resources you currently have.
