Product Managers - Own Your Product Journey

21 October 2021 | 08:00 PM - 09:00 PM  IST | Online

Product management is a complex and multi-dimensional role. As a Product Manager, you are responsible for creating products that create value not only for your business but also for your users and customers. You also need to collaborate with cross-functional teams and work hard to establish healthy relationships with key stakeholders in the business.

Product Managers often report to managers who are extremely busy and don’t have the time to coach them. It is also not unusual that the managers themselves have never been in the trenches building products and therefore are unable to provide the much-needed guidance and coaching.

It can feel very lonely being a Product Manager, and the hard truth is in order to succeed, you have to be very intentional about developing into a strong product leader.

In this session, we look at ways you can own your growth and pave your way to become a competent product leader.
