Choosing the right service for your business
You're running a start-up, and you know how invaluable it can be to bring in focused, experienced people to guide you through your current period of growth and development.
A product strategy audit will analyse, benchmark and critique your organisation across the five key categories of leadership, structure, system, skills, and tools.
Perhaps you, personally, and perhaps some of your colleagues, would benefit of having access to a mentor to offer you the benefit of their knowledge, expertise and advice?
Or are you facing a phase of software development and don't really know where to start? Why not out-source the creation of your secret sauce to our experienced teams of software engineers, UX designers, researchers, product managers and scrum masters? Why employ a variety of unknown others when you can deploy the expertise of Samepage?
Wherever you are, whatever your needs, let's have a chat.
Digital strategy support
Helping you get the most out of what you have.
As a founder, you don't know what you don't know.
Whether you choose to work with Samepage or not, you need to hear this.
You're heading up a digital startup. You know, deep down, that you're smarter than most of the people you know. You have a dream, an idea that you want to turn into reality. You have excellent domain knowledge. And you have lots and lots of drive and ambition.
Furthermore, you are probably pretty clear on the commercial side of running a business, and you may be pretty amazing at sales, too. Your knowledge of tech is good, but you know you need that CTO with the deep tech smarts to guide the product development side of the business. Then, here comes your growing team of developers and designers, and you're off to the races, right?
What you are missing is a digital strategy, built on empirical data by strategy experts who have done this many, many times before (and got the scars to prove it). A best-of-breed strategy cuts through all the noise and the opinions, and becomes your North Star for years to come.
It's time to level up.
Bring in the experts.
Again, it doesn't have to be us!
Whoever you chose, though, must bring you, as an absolute minimum;
- a practical, sustainable digital strategy that your entire team can get behind, and that is based on...
- empirical, forensic, data-driven research, and includes...
- a clear value proposition
- a sound set of priorities
- a solid structure, designed to support your ambitions for growth across all three time horizons, while at the same time...
- protecting you and your business from a predatory, investor-led takeover.
Ideally, you will co-create your digital strategy with strategy experts who have been through this many times before and who, crucially, you can trust. Trust not only to help you create an excellent strategy, but also to offer constructive feedback, point out flaws in your thinking, and have the 'hard conversations' whenever appropriate.
'Yes-people' have no useful role to play in digital strategy support!
We'd love to have a chat.
If any of this resonates with you, please pick up the phone or drop us a line.
We are more than happy to have a conversation with you about your situation, and the specific challenges you are facing right now. There's no cost, no obligation, no pressure of any kind. In fact, we aim to deliver value in any and every interaction, so you will more than likely come away from the call with us somewhat more enlightened and empowered than you are feeling right now, even if we never hear from you again.
One-to-one support for career development
What is Business Mentoring?
As your career develops, you will inevitably encounter new challenges you must overcome. Whilst trial and error is effective , it’s also learning ‘the hard way’.
You can shortcut the ‘error’ bit by benefiting from the experience of someone who has been there, done that, worn the t-shirt!
A Mentor offers you their knowledge, expertise and advice, and help you to reflect on your own experience and performance, enabling you to ‘self-coach’.
Mentoring vs. Coaching
In coaching a more formal, structured approach is taken, with specific goals and action plans. A business coach need not have direct experience of your circumstances, as they apply the same methods to any problem.
Mentoring is a more fluid interaction, heavily led by the your aspirations, goals and current situation. Your Mentor must have direct and relevant experience to be able to relate to, and advise you.
Mentoring from Samepage
Our service is delivered using popular video conferencing tools. Depending upon location, face-to-face meetings can be arranged, although due to Covid-19 we are currently providing only remote sessions.
To kick off, we provide a free 30 minute consultation during which we explore your background and aims, and answer any questions you may have about the process. This session also gives you a chance to meet your Mentor to make sure you’re compatible.
Product team as a service
Software product development out of a box, including engineering, research, design and product management.
Every successful business does a particular thing more effectively and attractively than its competitors. This is your secret sauce, your unfair advantage that differentiates you from others in the market and for which your customers choose you.
If your value proposition isn’t actually software development, then you should ask yourself “Why are we trying to do it ourselves?” Hiring and managing people with specialist skills is difficult and can be risky; bad choices can hold you back, or even be fatal to your business. By leaving software product development to the professionals you can concentrate on being world-class in your expert domain, safe in the knowledge that the technical stuff is being taken care of.
We hit the ground running
Our experienced teams of software engineers, UX designers, researchers, product managers and scrum masters are ready to help you drive your business forward. We know what works and what doesn’t, and how to get the best out of technology in the shortest possible time.
Uniquely for a boutique consultancy, Samepage has an unrivaled breadth of experience in software with world class product management expertise. From ERP to world #1 consumer apps, web, SaaS, mobile apps (iOS/Android/hybrid), AR/VR: we’ve been there, done that, got the mousemat.
Furthermore, Samepage’s founder, Aidan Dunphy, is a senior consultant for Product Focus, Europe’s #1 Product Management training, certification and consultancy provider. We set the standard by which others are judged.
