I am a senior-level product designer and leader. I have flexibility in working with offices in the local San Diego area or remotely. Here are a few options:
Delivering product design expertise
If you are improving on an existing product or taking a new company to market, I can provide senior-level product design guidance through design strategy, executional support, or organizational challenges facing teams with work in progress. We can discuss an ongoing or project-based scope. Here is an example of a product experience I have worked on.
Align your team with collaborative workshops
If you are looking for a catalyst to align your team in a new strategic direction, I can facilitate a workshop (or series of workshops) for your team to guide through an innovation process of discovery, journey mapping, prototyping, and validation of new product experience. The process results in valuable product strategy and alignment between team members that motivates teams to move forward. Here is an example of a workshop I have facilitated.
Build a prototype for your startup
Bringing a product to life requires focused customer insight and special attention to incremental product development. Having worked through scaling three startups, I can work with your initial experience or advise your team through the testing and growth of your product. Here is a startup concept that I prototyped, with another great team.
Develop and refine your product strategy
Working with your team, I can help you learn more about the key challenges facing your customers. Building on research, we’ll develop and validate a product strategy and outline any objectives for making that strategy a reality and test the approach through prototyping and validation. Here is a research program I launched to inform a strategic plan.
Optimize your team’s design process
Developers have Agile coaches and scrum masters, but your design team might be left to figure it out along the way. I can work with your team to define current challenges, then find ways to tune the process to improve transparency, collaboration, and quality within Agile environments.
Ad hoc evaluations
I can examine, evaluate, and make recommendations on an existing experience based on the challenges currently facing your business. The results of this evaluation will find opportunities for testing and quick improvements, along with areas for additional focus and research.
