This is a one-day roundtable specifically for those leading product management teams: Product VPs, Directors of Product Management, Chief Product Officers and other product-focused execs. Limited to 12 attendees, we will set an agenda (in advance) of top issues — and spend a full day sharing strategies for addressing these issues. Since we will be among peers, we can talk frankly about what works and what doesn’t work at the executive level.
- Managing roadmap interrupts from founders and stakeholder executives
- Hiring, training and mentoring strategies for new product managers
- Selling the value of product management to peer organizations
- Role definitions, or “who does what”
We will also have a private dinner for all participants the evening before, at Jardinière (300 Grove St, SF): a chance to get acquainted ahead of our all-day working session. Wine, wisdom, war stories, and closed-door networking with other product executives.
Even if we assume a team of individually great product managers (and developers and designers and marketing/sales/services/support folks), organizations are complex. Getting things done is hard, so we must be strong enablers of our teams. Sharing leader-level experiences helps us recognize patterns across companies team and give names to apparently-unique issues.
