Hello there,

I can help you build brilliant web apps and help you delight your customers.
I'm a PRINCE2 and PSM certified Product and Project Manager; I help individuals and organisations serve their customers, make more sales and save operational costs, with better designed and built web and mobile applications. Starting with your business goals, I coordinate a design team to specify the application; then supervise a technical team to build and deliver the final solution.

Personal Profile

I can help reconcile the rigidity of 'Project Management' with the creative process of 'Software Development'
I am Adam Giles, Technical Product and Project Manager.

From Vision to Visualisation
I've help lead startups translate their vision into a tangible plan to building their service.

How to build that?
Technical Product Management is all about translating business requirements into a strategic technical approach in order to implement and achieve those business goals.

Traditional Project Management
Gantt charts, Pert charts, and risk registers, oh my!
