About Me

Hi! I'm John, and I like telling product stories!

I firmly believe in the power of words and, predictably enough, hate typos with a vengeance. As an entrepreneur, or an intrapreneur when working with others, forming a strategy to overcome a business challenge is more than a skill; it's second nature. And it just so happens that one needs the right set of words to craft a strategy.

I am at my best when transforming an idea or a need from a concept into a full-fledged product offering. By applying an engineer's methodical approach to business objectives, I tinker, tweak and analyse until deliverables are fit for roll-out.

My specialities include product management, business analysis, communication and systems analysis.

Philosophy

Think ahead

No matter how wonderful the journey,
there is always a destination.
Plan your way there.

Expertise

Business Analysis

Business plan; product strategy, et al. Crucially, no bloodwork analysis, though. Look elsewhere for that.

Product Management

From an idea, to market - and beyond. An exciting journey with lots of boxes to tick! And pizza, somewhere.

Communication

A generous splash of critical thinking, along with an innate hatred for typos. This is how I write at all times.

Systems Analysis

Together with some very talented gurus, we cross the "t"s and dot the "i"s of business systems and processes!
