We help clients build a culture, process, and practices focused on creating great tech products
Jeff Patton & Associates helps companies adopt a way of working that’s focused on building great tech products, not just building stuff faster. And, in the 21st century every product is at least in part a tech product. We blend a mixture of Agile thinking, Lean and Lean Startup Thinking, UX Design and Design Thinking, and solid Product Management to end up with a holistic product-centric way of working.
We believe that organizations succeed based on their ability to create a product their customers love. That product may be software, a physical product, or a service. But, whatever it is, your company’s success turns on it. Profit, or real shareholder value, is a consequence of creating great products.
We believe that focus on creating tech products that customers and users love extends all the way into your organization. This means great mobile apps or web experiences that support your external customers, great software that supports your employees so they can better serve customers, and great tools and infrastructure that helps product teams better create all those tech products. Product thinking improves outcomes throughout the organization.That focus on really helping the people using your products not only creates great business impact, it leaves those that create those products happy and motivated. It’s just a better way to work.
