Are you laser-focused on the largest opportunities to launch high-growth products?

If you’re like most startup founders and product leaders, you probably feel like you have an endless to-do list, and you’re never quite sure if you’re spending your time on the right things. Everyone’s constantly busy, but it feels like a grind.

I’ve been there. But after working on dozens of product launches over a decade in tech startups, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. I’ve helped early-stage startups like The Lean Startup Company and Plectica, high growth companies like MediaMath and Shutterstock, and enterprises like Weight Watchers and Toys “R” Us figure out which product growth opportunities they should pursue and build the teams to deliver on their goals.

Through these experiences I have learned a repeatable process to launch successful products, develop top teams, and build a sustainable, scaled organization. People have more choices today than ever before, so it focuses on creating experiences they want to be a part of. Our world changes fast, so it focuses on rapid customer feedback and tight learning loops. At its core, it’s about finding people’s pains and developing effective solutions for their problems.

I call it Product Science, and I’m on a mission to teach it to everyone who wants to build high-growth products and great customer-focused organizations.

Data driven, execution oriented, leader, go getter. Those are the words I would use to describe Holly.
Holly came in to Shutterstock when we desperately needed business direction for Skillfeed (a Shutterstock company). She conducted one of the best data driven business analyses I have seen. Holly collected a tremendous amount of data by surveying the competitive landscape, comparing various industry pricing models, categorizing thousands of user feedbacks and came up with concrete suggestions that are backed by data. Furthermore, Holly was able to be Product Owners on multiple successful teams. I would recommend Holly without reservation.

I really enjoyed the Data-Driven Product Decisions workshop – the topic was one I feel like I am faced with more and more these days. I liked the way Holly did the product opportunity assessment, so I walked my team through some of the exercises to apply to a project we’re working on now. It helped us to focus our experimentation.

I really enjoyed meeting the other workshop attendees and getting an extended view into Holly’s product opportunity assessment process. I especially liked how Holly broke the guidelines down into digestible chunks for the break out sessions and built them back up together in the discussion. I also liked the format of a case study with her work at Shutterstock as examples. Felt free but not scary!

I worked with Holly on bringing a large enterprise web product to market, and the job could not have been completed without Holly’s leadership as the product owner. Holly is the rare product leader who is the complete package: empathetic to users, effective and fun for designers and engineers to work with, and trusted by executives to deliver on strategic KPIs and maintain transparency from concept to launch. I give Holly my most enthusiastic recommendation.
