Hi! I'm Karen...
I founded Great Products Consulting because, when it comes to developing a mobile app or online platform, people simply don’t know what they don’t know. Why do I say that? Because, research shows that on average, just 16% of projects are completed on-time, on-budget and with the features and functions originally requested.
That’s a whole lot of unnecessary time, money and stress to, potentially, end up with something that doesn’t 100% meet your brief.
As a digital product consultant, I’m here to help you beat the odds.
Chances are you’ve spotted an opportunity to grow your business by delivering your services on the web or via mobile. Or an idea that uses tech to help people achieve their goals. Now you need to take it from idea to implementation without walking into a heap of (totally avoidable) bear-traps.
With extensive experience in the the technology industry, spanning four countries and three continents (including here in Australia), I’m all about taking the guesswork out of digital product development. As both a business analyst (bridging business and technology) and a product manager (driving for long-term profitability), I offer end-to-end support to deliver an online platform or mobile app that’s not just ‘finished’ but actually lives up to its potential - and produces a meaningful ROI.
In short, I’m a straight shooter (a Canadian one, so I’ll do it nicely) with a single goal – to help you deliver a successful and cost-effective digital product.
About Great Products Consulting
Great Products Consulting (GPC) does exactly what it says on the tin. If you’ve found a way to make money by delivering a service through a website or mobile app, or if you’re keen to use tech to better serve your customers, GPC will help you to translate that vision into something workable, marketable and cost-effective.
We know that the development process is fraught with totally avoidable problems and pitfalls. The sort of issues where research shows that…
• 31% of projects to be cancelled before completion
• 52% of projects to cost 189% of their original estimates
• Projects to take, on average, 222% longer than estimated
But it doesn’t have to be that way. We ask the difficult questions – questions you may not even have thought to ask yourself, set realistic expectations, build in checks and balances, and help you to navigate the process with ease.
And the journey doesn’t end once you’ve launched your product. We want to help you make the most of your investment. How you manage your product on an ongoing basis is just as important to its success.
You don’t need to learn the hard way. We’re right here - with the tools, skills and knowledge you need to deliver and grow a great digital platform or mobile app.
