In these exciting but strategically challenging times, the importance of delivering the 'right product' at the 'right time' remains true as ever, but we should certainly not underestimate how difficult this statement is to achieve in practice. Delivering on critical expectations, from both the 'Customer' and the 'Business' requires a thorough and pragmatic approach to 'Product Management'. To this end, it requires dedicated and timely ownership across the entire Product LifeCycle, from 'Innovation' through to 'Product Withdrawal'.


Following 'Method' and 'Best Practice' delivers many repeatable qualities, a cornerstone for success. ...ingredients that lead to opportunities rather than problems.






We offer a range of professional services that enable your Business to deliver Products and Services in the most efficient and effective way possible.


IPM has over 25 years experience and are passionate about this key business discipline. We have gained extensive levels of practical experience and understand what works and conversely what doesn't. Product Management is without doubt an inherently complex subject, primarily due to many functional interactions across the defined time frame, it also has many interpretations. Infact to further our own understanding of this subject, some years ago we mapped the complete 'product management' end to end LifeCycle activity, resulting in an interrelationship map (under continuous review) of over 14,000 interdependencies. This unique body of knowledge enables us to quickly interpret and with a high degree of confidence implement the right solution for you.


From individual training programmes, interactive business models, customer experience mapping, through to holistic Product Management Methodologies (PMM), you can be completely assured you are getting the best solution for your needs.



From 'information guidance' to 'consultant embedded' resource, we provide integration and flexibility to meet your needs. Resource can be reserved in advance and at any time (on demand) and at any stage of your project. We operate in complete harmony with your organisational values and offer seamless integration with your own resource.

The size, type, maturity and culture of a business plays a major part as to how its own structure evolves over time. When we observe this rationale across wide sections of industry, it has duly led to many interpretations and associated terms of reference for the Product Management discipline. We respectfully understand that your company is unique and special with its' own idiosyncrasies, so whatever your structural / process starting point is, we offer a valid path and embrace 'best practice' and continuous improvement together.  ...Lean,  efficient, effective and simply right for your organisation.


After many years of practical experience in Product Management, the critical success factors are clear...


Management Disciplines Performing as One


Managing products across their entire life-cycles to deliver on strategic intent, sounds easy, however it remains a considerable challenge to many businesses. All too often the Product Management discipline is simply left to chance and / or mis-managed. The danger of operating in this ad-hoc way of course is that it can lead to a range of undesirable consequences.


Product Management is a key business discipline with numerous time related TouchPoints to be owned and managed. With significant interactions to be pro-actively considered, the result is a complex array of potential outcomes and often requires a triad of management disciplines all performing as one in order to succeed. The 'PMM' process offers a valid path through these complexities, adhering to modern 'Lean' principles throughout, offering the most efficient and effective way to cascade your 'strategic intent' - following method, results in repeatable qualities and outcomes.


You can therefore be assured that the Product Management Methodology (PMM) has the flexibility for your organisation, has been extremely well thought through and includes a complement of modern management methods and processes that align perfectly to best practice interlocks.


...without question, the PMM methodology is a superlative example of robustness and scalability

 that will consistently and effectively deliver your strategic intent.
