What others say about my work

I've had the honour to work with some great people. Here's what they said after I delivered the results for them. Disclaimer: These are all real people and I didn't pay for any of these testimonials.

Thomas Gläser, Director Product at New Work SE

Niko is a clever and passionate Product Manager who is always looking for the best possible solution which already creates value for our customers, keeping costs and effort in mind prioritizing. Niko is a true maker always aiming for fast delivery and learning from failures.

Dan Popescu, Head of Product at 2trde

Niko's skills reach well beyond his home-turf of Product Ideation & Discovery. He is an expert in Agile coaching, as well as in internal and external stakeholder management. Whether it's product, process, or project management, one can always count on Niko to deliver.

In addition to his professional abilities, Niko's friendly personality makes him a pleasure to work with. As a consultant, he hits the ground running, being the plug and play version of a senior product manager. If managed well from the company side, his onboarding will be measured in hours, not weeks.

Jonas Schenk, CPO at Nioomi

Niko has strong strategic design capabilities where he masters facilitation of user research and co-creation, turning user insights into innovative design concepts. At Nioomi, he helped us to realize a discovery project to understand new market segments. He greatly understands key methodologies for all aspects of the product design process. Niko delivered results quickly and made smart decisions to improve our product. I would happily recommend him to any team!

What I say about myself

Hey there,
I'm Niko, currently mostly based in Munich Germany, but working globally.

I build digital products that solve human problems and manage cross-functional teams to excel.
Discover, prototype, learn, iterate, build, measure, iterate. The basic formula for successful products. That's what I've been doing for 5+ years as a product builder and manager.
Before that, I shipped code as a full-stack software engineer. The technical background surely helps in translating business goals into feasible product iterations.

Every company is different, and every industry is. But there are common elements I focus on when working with any company:
- use my outside view to quickly snapshot existing processes and suggest steps to improve
- challenging assumptions (Are we working on the right thing?)
- get measurable results (How do we know we succeeded?)

If you are working on a challenging product and need someone that drives results quickly - that's me.
Happy to jump on a call with you to see if we are a fit. Just book 25min with me here.

What my writing says about me

A rising tide lifts all boats. That's the intention with which I approach my writing. I'm trying to give away as much value as possible.

This includes the templates I use every day, my "rolling research guide" as well as many other tactical or strategical tools and tips.
