Overcome these product strategy issues with effective innovation consulting

Lengthy development cycles      Agile product development
Our solution to help you accelerate progress involves identifying and removing internal barriers in a very practical, down-to-earth manner.

Achieve short an predictable developing cycles even when handling a lot of uncertainty and constantly changing specifications. We tailor the Agile framework to work for your team in your specific context.
Internal fragmentation & delayed decision-making      Cross team collaboration
Disagreement about which product to bring to market frequently slows down innovation. It also causes tension between teams and leads to decreased productivity.

To overcome this, we empower cross-team collaboration and create alignment around common goals. We then test these goals and outcomes with the market, cheaply and fast.

Our framework supports team members to follow through on their projects and continue learning and improving as they go along.
Resistance to change      Adaptability through incremental improvements
A risk-averse internal culture is also a key issue for complex organizations like yours.

Our validated innovation process helps both management and executive teams internalize new habits and make adapting to change part of their routine. This happens while managing internal requirements for risk, compliance, and legal and corporate communication.
Build better products
Shortage of great product ideas      Customer-driven product strategy

Part of our role is to help your colleagues, no matter their position, gain a deep understanding of the customers’ needs and mindset.

They can use this knowledge to act on their initiatives and generate data-driven growth ideas. We also help them master the practical steps to test their ideas them in the market.
Lackluster product development practices      A flexible and high-performing process
The mismatch between what companies want and what customers want has led to wasting billions on failed products.

One of the reasons is that organizations tend to run innovation programs the same way they manage your day to day business. This is how crucial growth opportunities slips through the cracks.

Our experience shows there’s a better way to create innovative products that people want to use and pay for. Here’s how we do it.

They worked with us to infuse innovation
into their product strategy

“In the innovation project I was involved I had a change in mindset: I moved focus from "how to sell a product?" to "do our customers need what we are selling?". And if they do, how should this product look like?

The hardest thing to accept is that there is no market need. Working with the guys at WiseUp helped us overcome this mental barrier.”

The second is awareness of the different roles of the members of a project and how to combine different areas of expertise to achieve results.
