Medwing operates a recruitment platform focused on the healthcare sector. Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Berlin, Germany, Medwing helps healthcare professionals find various employment opportunities. These range from temporary and permanent staffing positions to cross-border placements, targeting a wide range of healthcare roles including nurses, elderly caregivers, pharmacists, midwives, and doctors.
The company's platform is designed to streamline the process of matching healthcare professionals with hospitals and clinics, offering a digital workflow that includes job searching, contract management, digital signatures, and timesheet handling. Medwing's services are available in Germany and the U.K., where it supports a significant number of registered medical employers and healthcare professionals.
Medwing aims to differentiate itself in the market by focusing on both permanent and temporary placements and provides a solution to the traditionally manual and analog staffing processes in the healthcare sector. The company's approach has been to enhance service levels for both healthcare workers and medical facilities while also reducing overall system costs.
As for expansion, Medwing has expressed intentions to grow its presence across Europe, striving to become the leading healthcare job marketplace on the continent. The company's growth is supported by recent funding, which will also aid in reaching profitability based on its operations in Germany and the U.K
Medwing, a prominent player in healthcare staffing, recognized the need to overhaul its product management practices to keep pace with the rapidly evolving healthcare industry. We jumped in to deliver a full-day coaching session to enhance their product team's capabilities.
Our main mission was to elevate Medwing's product management team's capabilities, streamline their processes, and align product development with their growth targets.
In a competitive sector like healthcare staffing, agility and innovation are paramount. Medwing faced challenges with its product development cycle, which hindered its ability to respond effectively to market needs. The company's leadership sought to instill a robust product management culture to foster innovation and streamline processes.
Product People designed a tailored workshop, conducted over one full day, which centered around interactive activities on a collaborative Miro board. The workshop's design was influenced by industry best practices and the unique challenges faced by Medwing.
The workshop covered five critical areas:
After these 5 areas, we conducted two Product Clinics, where we discussed individual practical cases of the Product Managers present at the workshop. These Product Clinics are especially useful for tackling current challenges that Medwing’s product team might be facing. We also linked these Product Clinics with the information delivered at the workshop so the participants could see the real-life benefits of some of the methodologies worked previously.
Implementation and Practice: Each methodological aspect was accompanied by practical application:
The workshop's success was evident in the immediate feedback from participants, who noted increased confidence in their ability to navigate complex product landscapes and a clearer understanding of agile product management principles.

💡 By the end of the Coaching Sessions, Medwing had not only a theoretical understanding of the methodologies but also a practical blueprint to implement them directly into their workflow. This hands-on approach ensured that the methodologies would be ingrained in the team's practices beyond the workshop setting.
💡 The workshop's impact extended beyond the immediate team to influence Medwing's broader strategic approach, as the alignment of product goals with business objectives became more streamlined and effective.
💡 We left Medwing with a comprehensive manual for future reference, ensuring that the knowledge imparted would continue to guide the team's practices and contribute to ongoing development and refinement.
