Leveling Up Your Product Leadership Skills: August 22 in San Francisco

I’ll be in San Francisco in a few weeks to present at the August 22 ProductTank SF meeting, covering Product Management Excellence: What World-Class Product Management Teams Do Differently. Here’s a summary of the presentation:

Product management has not always been one of those evidence-focused fields. Product managers have historically “fallen” into the role, learning on the job by watching others who also learned on the job. Although product management leaders recommend and coach their teams on certain approaches that seem logical, the reality is that there has been little evidence to support certain product management practices or shed light on important aspects that may have gone unnoticed — until now.

We conducted research to identify the characteristics that drive product management excellence – product management teams that perform at a higher level than their peers. This session is for anyone leading or part of a product management team who wants to know what are the factors that are truly important in creating a product management function that can repeatedly produce products that achieve commercial success.

If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll join me at ProductTank SF meeting on August 22!
