Introducing gO/No-Go
The Opportunity Assessment


I am a big fan of and use the Opportunity Assessment frequently in my own engagements.
Now I want to share this innovative new Assessment product with you. If you are a
Product Manager or just need to think through a new product opportunity,
this is the perfect tool for you.



Why Product Opportunity Assessments Work


Use the Opportunity Assessment framework to quickly firm up your product decisions.

Are you struggling with product decisions?

  • Are you tinkering with a new idea but not sure it is worth exploring?

  • Are you considering a sizable new product investment?

  • Are you pitching your business to would-be investors and need to improve your odds?

Stop guessing - Stop stalling - Decide quickly

The Opportunity Assessment is a decision framework that helps Product Managers, entrepreneurs, and executives determine whether they have an idea worth chasing.


The Go/No-Go Assessment Multi-Tool Delivers
Only Positive Outcomes For Your Business



You may come away feeling supremely confident about your product's chances of success.

You are ready to begin validating your assumptions.


You may head off weeks or even months of wasted time and save yourself lots of money.

Start looking to discover the next great idea.


You may quickly zero in on those parts of your idea that need more research.

Circle back, you need to dig deeper on those specific topics.

The Multi-Tool is easy to use.

You're already wrestling with the idea itself - you don't need more grief. Experience has shown that this is the best way to capture, distill, and then present your ideas - all with a single tool!

Why PowerPoint?

It may be another inconvenient truth but PowerPoint is still one of the most effective ways to summarize and share big ideas with others. When you choose the Opportunity Assessment for capturing and distilling your next big idea, why not do it right in a tool that also is designed for sharing?
