You’re ready to take your idea or product to the next level.
And you know the next steps are critical.
But how do you know what the right next steps are?
The critical first step
Your first step is to lay the foundation with a roadmap for future product growth development.
We do this with you in what we call a Strategy Workshop.
Our Strategy Workshop is designed with the non-technical founder in mind. We've worked with dozens of entrepreneurs on early product development. You'll benefit from our team's experience and insights, gleaned from building cutting-edge products for dozens of established software companies.
The result is a detailed action plan outlining the steps required to execute your product growth strategy.
Product development best practices are evolving at such a fast pace that it was difficult for me to make decisions related to the software product and the technical skills needed. Belighted's advice brought me confidence and gave me clear steps that helped me maximize my chances of success.
- Vincent Leroy, CEO, Neveo
What You Can Expect from Our Strategy Workshop
Our Strategy Workshop packs as much learning and analysis as possible into one full day.
You will work one-on-one with a Belighted senior product manager - in our offices or remotely - for 8 hours.
Turning Your Strategy into Actionable Steps
Preparing for the Strategy Workshop
Be prepared to walk us through market needs, your ideas, and the problem your product solves. We expect you will have a business plan or a product vision document if you don’t already have a prototype or MVP.
You should have already conducted your market research and have data on market needs, market size, competition, etc.
Concepts and Discussions Packed into Your Strategy Workshop
We will begin by listening as you explain your project and market.
Your business model and risks, how far along you are in market validation, who your competitors are, and so on
Positioning of your product
Decisions already made for the project and their rationale
Review of your spec document, mockups, or current working product
Smart allocation of resources is crucial. We lead you through topics like:
Critical decisions and impact on your goals
Technology options for various aspects of your product
What your team looks like; resources you need
Prioritization of efforts based on deadline and budget constraints
Tying it All Together in an Action Plan
After our day together, we get to work strategy out the roadmap for your project.
Within 5 business days after completing the workshop, you will have in hand a solid plan of action for the growth development of your new product – whether we will be building it for you or not.
Your product roadmap may include:
A planning proposition with milestones and expected features
Goals and metrics
Recommendations for next steps, technologies and providers, if not using Belighted
Everything we'll share in our strategy Workshop package is designed to offer standalone value to you, regardless of whether or not you decide to continue to work with us.
