Skyjed commands and terms you need to know

This article defines some common Skyjed terms.

Skyjed Product 360 Workspace 

A workspace in Skyjed is like a ‘space or hub’ for product management. Your Product360 Workspace is made up of design, audit, domain and driver information. It is an at-a-glance representation of Product Strategy Summaries, Actions and Comments.

Customised virtual team

Skyjed allows you to create a virtual lifecycle team made up of different areas of expertise from your organisation so you can work remotely from anywhere, at any time. You can invite team members from development, support, customer success, finance, marketing and CX to create a cross-department team.  Product management is a collaborative effort so the wider the expertise of your team, the better your product will be.


A Skyjed Product Audit is a tool to help you monitor and review your product strategy, then make a forward-looking assessment about it.


A domain is an area of product health. 


A driver prompt for information or rating. It usually applies to your product domains.

Product health index

The Skyjed product health index is an AI-based rating of the health of your product expressed as a percentage.

Product Health-check score

The Skyjed product health-check score is an indicator or measure of the health of your product expressed visually.

Product assessment stage

The product assessment stage is the current status of your product design or audit. Skyjed offers one of four stages:

  1. In progress – a product strategy is defined and team created
  2. Review – a product health assessment is underway
  3. Approve – a product health assessment is completed and ready for approval to release as accurate point in time assessment.
  4. Published – product health assessment completed, reports are automatically generated.  When published it becomes a date stamped system record.

  3. Launched: Recently released into market for customer to use or purchase.
  4. Mature: Product that is no longer experience year on year growth.
  5. Exiting: Decision made to exit product from market and project plan in place.
  6. Closed: Product strategy is decommissioned
  7. Archive: Product information sent to storage and can be retrieved at later date.

 Managing Actions


An action is a plan to achieve an outcome.  You can select one of two action types: risk mitigation or strategic.

Risk mitigation

Risk mitigation is an action plan to prepare for or lessen the adverse impacts and long term sustainability of your product health.


A Strategic action is a documented plan to meet your product objectives and strategy.

Risk Assessment

A Risk Assessment is qualitative assessment of the risk and determined risk range.  The range is one of seven ratings: 

  • Very Likely
  • Guaranteed
  • Likely, Unlikely
  • Rare
  • Not Applicable.

Risk Likelihood

The risk likelihood is the probability of occurrence of a defined risk expressed as a rating.

Risk Impact

A risk impact is an estimate of the potential consequences and/or losses associated with an identified risk occurring.

Calculated risk rating

A calculated risk rating is an AI-calculated rating of the likelihood or the risk arising and the severity of the impact.

Target date

A target date is a date for you to track.  Its the date set for an event or for the completion of an action or goal.

Due date

The due date relates to an action and is the baseline completion date.


Cadence is the rhythm or frequency which a product manager completes a review and assessment of the health of their product and where a team has the opportunity to contribute. Basically, it is how often you run a Skyjed Audit.
