Product Success Playbook:
How to make the
transition to become product-led, Part 1

To scale and grow your company, you need to be led by the one thing that really matters: product. Discover what being product led looks like and practical steps to begin your transition with the latest thinking and techniques from global product leaders.

Are you ready for a product-led transformation?

What is it about the top tech companies such as Apple, Stripe, Netflix, Slack and Canva that helps them achieve rapid growth and sustained product success? They are driven by the value their products create. In other words, they are product-led.

Now look at your company. Are product decisions driven by sales? Do you constantly prioritise customer requests for features? Are you churning out features without focusing on the outcomes of those features? Or does the product take shape entirely based on the vision of the founder?

When the time comes to scale and grow, this just won’t cut it. If you want true product led growth, it’s time to make some changes.
