Attendees of Product Camp Silicon Valley 2017 voted up this talk on “Getting Promoted to Director.”


We had an energetic discussion, including several real-work-life examples of senior product managers who were thinking about the next job up; or had already talked with their managers about promotional opportunities; or who may have accidentally set hard deadlines for roles that may not be open in time.  Plus folks who were directors without any direct reports; questions about the value of titles; and a reprise of the morning’s keynote topic of Paying It Forward and mentoring our peers.
