Product Management

The product manager conference track facilitates the sharing of insights between product managers on challenges such as priorities for engineering, public roadmapping, metrics, balancing design with market fit, customer journey, collaboration and innovation.

As a product manager, you can be the product king. Or you can be a product secretary. By sharing openly our challenges, as well as our victories, we are empowering each other with the knowledge to shape our role - and ensure long term success in our organizations.

Don’t miss this track with sessions hosted by experienced leaders from Capital One, Keurig and Twitter. With presentations aimed at discussions; the challenging of routines, new ideas and methods together.

The conference is over, but the conversation continues in our product manager community in North America and Europe.

How to achieve product-market fit faster

There’s an element of age old sibling rivalry between design and product management.

Designers love to complain about PMs. And PMs love to complain about designers. But it's only because they're siblings in the product development process. The best PMs can think like a designer and visa versa.

Indeed, the best product management is good user experience.

This talk will explore the intersection of PM and Design, and how together we can achieve product-market fit faster by amplifying each other’s super powers instead of fighting each other.

Transforming into a product-led organization: learnings from the field

Everyone is talking about practicing “agile” and “lean”. We have so much focus on the “transformations” organizations are going through or attempting to go through, but what does “transformation” really entail? What does this look like at large enterprises, and what does success look like?

How do these transformations actually translate into building great products, and establishing a product-centered culture?

Join us for an interactive discussion as we dive into some of the challenges, wins, and lessons learned from our firsthand experiences being in the middle of these transformations at Capital One and beyond.

Product Management at the Edge

The challenges of product management have always included a need for consensus building, negotiation, and championing the voice of the customer. When your product is part of a larger platform or product ecosystem, navigating these taxing currents requires new strategies and a broader worldview. We will discuss how managing the edges of your product’s fit within a broader platform is vital to keeping the core intact, and how PMs benefit from tackling these issues head-on.
