Do you need a flawless and successful digital product, developed from scratch or upon existing foundations? Then you need an experienced product owner like me, meaning that I would be your go-to product manager for a whole project.

I have been working as a senior business analyst and a product owner since 2009, successfully completing over 50 IT projects across a range of industries. I have worked for industry leaders such as Avast, Raiffeisen Bank, and Société Générale’s Komercni banka, as well as a number of start-ups.

I specialize in business requirements analysis and creating product strategies for software development teams, developing applications for web and mobile environments. I can help you in various ways: through one-off consultations (regardless of your project's current phase), by creating specific documentation for your application, and by providing product and strategy management of a larger digital portfolio.

As a consultant, I build a 3-way communication bridge between the client, the owner of a project, and the development team. In some instances, I also step in as a product owner myself. Just as each project is unique, my project role evolves and its boundaries are typically set on a project-to-project basis. However, individual activities can be summarized in the following manner:

  • Before the start of a project — discovery and product analysis
    • Defining the vision and goals of a digital product
    • Creating a Product Backlog — business requirements and feature list
    • Prioritization of individual areas, definition of the Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
    • Consultations related to project management
    • Creation of the project documentation, meeting all the needs of a project
    • Creating documentation strategy, tactics, and an appropriate structure
    • Preparing and designing the scope of Feasibility Studies and Proof of Concepts
  • During the development
    • Supporting development team members
    • Consultancy, rapid requirement gathering from the business authority in case of missing details
    • Continuous oversight of team outputs
    • Preparing and conducting meetings and demos and strong participation in all agile ceremonies, such as regular Stand-up, Planning, Review, and Retrospective meetings
  • After the completion of the development
    • The final test of the project outputs
    • Finalization of the documentation
  • Continuous product management activities
    • Defining the Key Performance Indicators (KPI)
    • Selecting the most appropriate tools for data analysis and presentation of KPIs
    • Developing tools and methodologies for obtaining regular feedback
    • Using real client data and continuous KPI check-ups for designing further improvements

My goal for your application is to “own it” — act as a Product Owner and take full responsibility for including and fulfilling all business parameters. I prefer agile project management and projects that aim to deliver the greatest business value in the short term and grow gradually, over the large waterfall “big bang” approach. Let’s aim low, and grow high over time!

Major projects in the last 10 years:

  • 2021 — process management and analysis for an international automotive start-up project — 2 key projects for one of the most trusted online marketplaces for used cars in Europe and on the German market
  • 2020 — E2E online onboarding process for individuals and small businesses at Raiffeisen Bank
  • 2018–2019 — product ownership of projects for Avast Software’s clients from the telco industry in the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Ireland, and Italy
  • 2018 — process and business analysis for the agency InLoop
  • 2017 — business analysis project implementation MiFID II for Société Générale’s Komercni banka
  • 2015–2016 — leading a business analysis team and project management at a mobile banking project at Moneta Money Bank (formerly GE Money), later awarded as The Best Mobile App of 2017 in the Czech Republic
  • 2011–2013 — business analysis projects for mobile banking BSC Praha, projects for Equa Bank and Sberbank + participation in internal product development

Firsthand recommendations

I had the opportunity to work with Petr for several years, with most of the time on the same team. Petr was one of the key persons in the project of new mobile banking, which successfully kept the role of project manager and analyst. He had a perfect technical IT knowledge and since the beginning of the project he used great business orientation. Final product speaks for itself. I definitely recommend Petr! I respect him not only as a great expert, but also as a great colleague and person!

Jiří Fanc Senior DevOps engineer at GE/MONETA Money Bank

I worked with Petr on a mobile banking application for MONETA Money Bank and on several smaller mobile projects for this bank. We know each other for over 4 years and I can say with confidence that there are not many experts on the market who can match the combination of Petr's skills. He is a technically equipped person who is capable of writing and maintaining precise analytical documents (be it a technical / business specification or documentation), and he has a great amount of negotiation skills that helped us execute projects flawlessly even in such a large corporation with strict processes. Also, he always kept all projects under control and tracked all tasks that needed to be done with an extraordinary level of tenacity and passion. I can highly recommend Petr as both a great person and a great colleague!

Petr Dvorak CEO at Wultra

Petr worked at Air bank from the very beginning and was a significant part of the team that built Internet Banking for our bank. I enjoyed working with him as he is an open and friendly guy. Petr always tried to solve any issue you come with. He worked hard, with definite quality. You could rely on him.
