Is Your Organization Doing Everything It Can To Explore, Evolve And Execute Products?


The appetite for building exceptional products has never been higher, and yet, many organizations struggle to grow effective and successful product management. With that in mind, how can business leaders develop organization competency and fast-track product innovation? How can they improve processes and build product culture maturity from within the organization?

At Bain Public, we make sure a product-driven culture is a fundamental part of an organization’s decision-making process. We put in place product-centric values and product management habits that deliver genuine business value. It’s all about exploring, evolving and executing — collaborating closely and roadmapping with your team as a whole.

You may have a 12-month roadmap defined, but every three months the market, your industry, competitors as well as customer expectations can change — sometimes drastically — as we witnessed when the coronavirus pandemic took a toll on both the market and various industries.

When our client relationship is functioning at its best, we give them information, expertise, insight and execution — analytically applying our expertise to come up with insights of the shift and helping you strategize and implement the necessary changes to help your company succeed.

Bain Public’s value here isn’t in procuring the data — it’s in helping implement new roadmap initiatives based on the data. And we can do all of this with the help of our ‘Explore, Evolve, Execute’ service package.

How Are You Managing Your Products?
Over the last few years, products have become more and more complex, but what’s shocking is that fewer than 15% of organizations have tackled this level of complexity through product-led strategy and roadmap planning.

So how are you managing your products exactly? Do you have a solid strategy, focus and vision in place? Is your team aligned and prepared to collaborate and roadmap?

At Bain Public, we’ve done hundreds of product roadmaps. Our staff have answered thousands of product strategy and transformation questions. But the primary experience we offer is a partnership where our experts can share their experience and best practices in a research-based and co-creation environment — while also encouraging an appetite for product-led change amongst senior leaders and managers.

Explore, Evolve, Execute
With our ‘Explore, Evolve, Execute’ offering, we help you create alignment around the roadmap and set up collaborative exchanges to bring your team together — tackling roadmap challenges fast. Trust us, you don’t actually have to say ‘yes’ to everything and play office politics. It’s the path to burnout and frustration.

As part of our service package, we help you work within your teams to develop sustainable product management as well as research, create, test and refine digital products to build lasting business value.

We start by identifying your product's most important mission. We assess its unique strategies and tactics. From there, we work together to unpack the challenges you face, build new insights and perspectives. Our approach with collaborative learning exchanges, fieldwork to practice new mindsets, and skills, has proved to work best. Our product discovery and UX team will then collaborate closely with you, keeping the quarterly roadmap intent intact, and integrating our SOAP™ workflow to uncover customers needs, problems and desires.

We’ll help you challenge assumptions, build empathy and extract novel insights with actionable recommendations to feed into the next roadmap prioritization meeting. Remember, the roadmap is essential to ensure the right feature is delivered at the right time, and also gives direction and motivates stakeholders and teams.

What can you expect with this offering? The following is a snapshot of the deliverables that are completed through meticulous collaborative discussions and in partnership with in-house resources.

  • Documentation of research (qualitative and quantitative)
  • Product discovery (e.g. your product blueprint)
  • Roadmap with your team (e.g. define key metrics, decision-making framework)
  • User experience strategy (e.g. design and prototyping)
