What do you actually do?

What type of projects do you work on?

  • “What’s our problem?”
  • “How do we solve this problem?”
  • “We have an idea for how to solve a problem, help us make it make sense”
  • Projects where we’re creating something:
  • an app/service/product;
  • a vision and telling a story around it;
  • making teams better able to deliver what they need

What does a typical day look like?

  • Start before the internal teams do so I’m ahead of the game
  • 9–10:30 stand ups to align with 2/3 teams
  • Prep for any client deliverables, or work with one of the teams to crack specific challenges
  • Line mgmt / internal initiatives / biz dev proposal writing
  • Afternoon is client meetings to align on stuff with, demo work in progress, iterate our approach.
  • And we go again
