Companies and Products We've Built

Our Framework

Having worked with 75 companies over 7 years, we started to identify a lot of patterns in the product challenges they were facing. Their challenges were similar to the ones we've faced ourselves as product leaders at startups and Fortune 500 companies alike.

So we packaged our best practices in addressing these challenges into a framework called Vision-Led Product Management and explained how to use it to ship the right product in our #1 Amazon Best Seller: Build What Matters.

build-what-matters

The core concepts include:

  • Using the key outcomes your customers or users are expecting your product to deliver to choose your product success metrics
  • Crafting a customer journey vision for how you can 10x that key outcome for customers at some point in the future
  • Working backwards from that vision to craft a strategic plan to realize the desired end-state experience
  • Balancing your product roadmap between making progress towards the vision, supporting existing customers and operating a modern SaaS technology platform

We tailor the framework to the needs of every client, so you get what fits best with your company's culture, product and market.

Intro Call

Request a call to see our pricing and packages, then schedule time to get to know us and start talking about the product situation at your company.  We'll then match you with an advisor / coach based on your needs.

Free Trial

Continue with another 1-2 check ins to meet your advisor / coach and get a feel for what regular calls will feel like. From this, we can prioritize a few focus areas should you want to move forward with ongoing advising / coaching.

Ongoing Check Ins

Once we formalize an engagement, we’ll continue the conversation on a regular basis with you and your colleagues. Over time, we’ll help you make progress on the product focus areas that matter to you and your business.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"I first encountered Prodify in a working session sponsored by one of our investors at Savonix and was impressed. As a result I brought Rajesh on as a product advisor to help us transition to a product-driven, user-centric organization. He went on to do a great job as an Interim VP of Product. In that role he was instrumental in building out our product team and processes and to convert my vision as the founder into a product vision and strategy grounded in buyer and user insights. For any startup founders or CEOs looking for product help, the team at Prodify are change makers that will drive your organization forward."

"Sara has been a great coach for me, particularly during my transition to a Director role. She’s pushed me to step into a more strategic role and provided actionable steps on how to do so. This has allowed me to empower my team to own their individual products, while I set the broader vision. I am a stronger product lead because of Sara’s coaching."

"Finding a solid Head of Product isn’t easy, but it was critical for our business. We partnered with Rajesh to help us hire this role and he was nothing short of exceptional! He recruited all the candidates, screened them using a tailored set of questions, and ensured they would bring the key product management skills we needed through a lightweight but powerful homework assignment. I’d encourage any startup founder looking to make their first crucial product hire to speak to Rajesh and the Prodify team."
