What clients usually engage your Product Strategy Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Product Strategy talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Product Strategy professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Product Strategy consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Product Strategy consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Product Strategy talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Product Strategy talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Product Strategy consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

Everything you need to know about Product Strategy

  • What is Product Strategy?
    Product strategy is the process of defining the mission, vision, and goals of your product. It’s a step in between creating a list of features and actually building the product. However, these 3 steps are done in parallel. The reason for this is because it can be difficult to determine what features will work best for your users without actually talking to them.
  • Why Does Product Strategy Matter?
    Product strategy matters because it gives an idea on how to market a product to an audience. After this, it allows one align their goals with the correct features. Once this is done, you’ll be able to utilize them in your product development process.
  • How Does Product Strategy Work?
    The key to product strategy is creating a road map for yourself. This roadmap should encompass everything about your product – including sales/advertising/communication, quality assurance, and time management. Each step should be focused on making sure that the next step is accomplished as well as the one after that.
    The blueprint for this plan can be broken down into 3 major sections. These are ideation, development, and release. However, each section also requires a set of sub-steps within it. If you’re trying to plan out how you’ll go about creating a new app, the first step would be to identify your target audience and use this information as a guide.
    It’s crucial that you don’t try and make your product for everyone. This will only dilute the quality of the final product and will make it difficult for someone new to find what they need within it.
    To make sure that happens, the next step would be to create some hype (if applicable) as well as something/anything that can help bring attention to your project.
    The final step is to create a launch strategy. This involves scheduling your release for a certain time and trying to generate as much hype as possible. This is because anything that you can do to create more buzz will help you in the long run.
  • What’s the Best Way to Stay Focused?
    One of the biggest struggles that people have when it comes to product strategy is deciding what they should focus on. While there are definitely certain aspects of your product that are important, it can be hard to know which ones they are. One way in which you can solve this is by reviewing all potential features in broad categories, or by segmenting them into smaller groups.
    After all of this, you’ll have a better idea on what to develop and how it will affect your overall goal. The next step is to make sure that you have a budget in place. This will allow you to prioritize features that are more important than others and will also take into account the scope of your project. Once this is completed, you can take all of this information and apply it to your roadmap.

Why Should You Engage a Product Strategy Expert?

Product strategy can be hard to perfect. However, once you’ve done it you’ll be able to successfully market your product and prioritize features before you even develop it. This way, you’ll save time and money in the long run.
The importance of product strategy is that it helps guide your project/business in the right direction. It allows you to mitigate risk and leaves little room for error. By doing this upfront, you can avoid any problems that you might run into further down the road.
It’s a good idea to take some time to review your product strategy from time to time as well – especially if something significant happens with your business or audience demographic changes. This will help keep you on track and gives you a great way to tell if things are going well or not.
