Des Traynor’s Recipe for a Product-First Company

Intercom Chief Strategy Officer Des Traynor knows a lot about different ways to build a company. Some focus on sales, others emphasize marketing, and a few put their technology first. Today, however, Des points out that we’re living in an era of product-first companies – and that shift in strategy has changed the way we do business.

At Nordic Business Forum 2016, Des spoke to his audience about the ingredients needed to successfully build a product-first company. He did this, quite simply, by observing the common traits that all companies of this type exhibit.

Des Traynor’s Recipe for Success

Des observed that all successful product-first companies…

  • have a strong vision
  • create a product that’s feasible, desirable and viable
  • keep their focus
  • capture the value they want to create
  • measure their business properly
  • and are very patient for growth

Would you agree with Des? He gave away a few extra tips and tricks of the trade that you can see here and here. And you can flick through his full set of slides here.
