Developing as a Product Manager

Developing as a Product Manager

It takes competent, passionate, skilled product people (and a cross‐functional product development team sharing the same characteristics) to deliver a successful product. And becoming this kind of a product manager takes time, effort, and commitment. It ́s a long journey and a hard one if you are not having a kind of compass that helps you find your way. Too few product people are having a line manager helping them with all of this and you're probably having to manage your own development and don't know where to start. Come to this session to learn how to take control of your own skill growth.
