What’s your Startup’s Product Strategy?

Product Strategy turns your company vision into product roadmap and helps you to deliver value to the customer.


Co-Creating SaaS Startups and Your Product Strategy

Your product strategy achieves product goals, and it can mean different things to different companies and different leaders. But when it’s done right, product strategy provides the direction and boundaries on what should be done to achieve organizational product goals.

Defining product strategy is much of an outside-in approach to gather inputs and insights from the customers, competitors, market and business models. When you define the product strategy, you would have carefully answered questions.

  • Who are the customers? and why should we solve their problem?
  • Which category or sub-category of the customers should we serve?
  • Should we focus on a specific industry or for all industries? And why?
  • What industry trends should we care about and how do they impact?
  • What will happen if we don’t solve customers’ problem?
  • Who are the competitors? and why are they winning?
  • What business model helps us to serve customers and also be profitable?

Your product strategy achieves product goals. As the company, market and customers evolve over time, the product strategy does too. It turns out that for many products that do not do well in the market, it may be due to a failed product strategy that hasn't changed over time or is not defined well.
