Previously I held several senior positions within transformation programs in the public services sector in the UK, I was co-founder of a disruptive startup in the engineering sector, and a delivery focused technologist in the Financial Services sector in the UK and Switzerland.
My professional expertise: product design and development, product innovation, agile, lean product management, user centered design, lean startup, design thinking and agile transformation.
Applying lean, agile, design thinking and a test driven design process to your product management and development...
So often technology and business organisations ask the question "can we build it?", we think that this is the wrong question, "should we build it?" is closer to the mark. Rokket Digital works with clients to validate their ideas through a test-driven approach to building new digital products and services. We believe that by putting the lean "brain" in front of the agile processes, our clients work in a way that insures they are spending their time and allocating resources and people to the most promising ideas. With a 'learn early, learn often' iterative approach, our clients accelerate their delivery of innovative solutions to market.
