Tim Herbig Product Management Portrait

You're looking to improve your skills as a Product Manager? You want to break into Product Management or want to succeed in a new role you've taken on? You're looking for actionable ways of helping the Product Managers you lead to succeed with their teams and products? You've come to the right place.

What my Work is all about

I want to empower Product Teams to become the best version of themselves. The majority of my content and offerings is build around this purpose. It's one of the main reasons why I get up in the morning and one of the last things I have in mind before logging-off from work in the evening.

My workshops, talks, and online courses are created with an end-state of empowered Product Teams in mind. I try not to teach, as much as I try to facilitate self-knowledge for the teams through practical experience.

The quality of my content and services is the result of working 10+ years in product management. I know what it takes to make progress in a large-scale corporate environment and to balance scrappiness with quality in the early days of a startup.

I don't believe that the number of written user stories or shipped products can tell you anything about my work (or the work of your team). Furthermore, I want to change people's behavior in a way which is beneficial for the business - both theirs or the company I work for.

This underlying principle now influences how I chose to work with entire organizations, teams, and individuals. Whether it is through on-site workshops or remote coaching - My goal is still to change people's behavior. And I want to change it in a way, so my clients can approach the challenges of their everyday work and future career with confidence and ease.

I’ve partnered with some amazing clients:
