Sandra Davey

Organisational Facilitator, Coach and Consultant

Working in volatile, ambiguous, and innovative markets, my experience in digital and tech disruption gives me unique perspective and capability to help leaders and teams address current and future challenges and opportunities presented by technology, product and data.

“The only constant in life is change”

I love helping people, teams, and leaders get breakthroughs with the way they get work done; in how they plan, coordinate, progress and track work. It could also be helping to unblock structural, cultural or organisational issues with the way teams are organised and work is carried out. I do this in the pursuit of helping to improve the speed at which a  business gets its value to market.

Mashing product-led thinking, agile, and lean ways of working I do this by facilitating, consulting, coaching or teaching across these areas:

  • Working with leadership teams on strategy development, activation and execution
  • Designing teams, areas or organisations to align with strategy (organisational design and development)
  • Facilitating any type of workshop or event, rhythms, or routines around planning and executing work
  • Facilitating product strategy development
  • Working with leadership teams, business/product teams and Boards on adopting modern ways of working.

I’ve had particular success with APNIC, improving the way they execute their work, and creating alignment across different areas through better planning, reducing dependencies and bottlenecks and implementing clear goals and metrics to track progress in the value they deliver. I often facilitate different events like team improvement workshops or ¼ or ½ yearly planning events.

"Sandra's ability to cut through the noise and make lasting, effective change to organisations, and therefore people, is unparalleled. It is always energising and inspiring working with Sandra.”  - Siena Perry, APNIC

From chaos to clarity: Simplifying product strategy with a step by step canvas

Crafting effective product strategies is a vital but often overlooked and daunting aspect of successful product management. We created a Product Strategy canvas to help guide you through this process in a step by step way.

What the dickens does a Product Manager do?

What does a Product Manager actually do? A perennial question, an ongoing discussion, often ending in debate. You can be comforted to know though that we are all driven to create value. For our customers and our organisation.

The best way to screw a product is to NOT have a product manager at the helm.

The logic and rationale for why all products and services need the focus, wisdom, smarts, experience and support of a dedicated Product Manager or Prod

Keeping the focus on finding product-market fit

The desire to rush to a solution affects every great Product Manager I've met. But staying vigilant and focused on figuring out if there is a need in the market for the great idea your company has, will save you in spades.
