PRLog - March 6, 2012 - ALBANY, Calif. -- San Francisco - Love of a product goes beyond a good usability and an extensive feature list. It requires a deeper connection with the needs of the customer. Borrowing on Kathy Sierra's work in creating excellent customers, how do companies develop products for passionate users? When you create an ecosystem and community around a product, a company can benefit from users helping each other become better. As a product manager, how do you create passionate users? How do you move them up the ladder of participation from awareness to conversion to evangelist? How do you measure the passion of your users?
Kelly Abbott, President, Co-Founder, 3ones, Inc. will speak at the weekly Global Product Management Talk on Twitter Monday, March 12, 2012 at the simultaneous times of 5:00 PM Pacific Time, 8:00 PM Eastern Time, which will be Tuesday, March 13 at 11:00 AM Sydney, Australian Time using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk
Kelly says, "So often the good folks in Product Management work in isolation, plying their trade behind the firewall. Because Product Managers are multi-talented folks, we tend to learn from communities whose focus is UI/UX, Entrepreneurship, Programming or Engineering. Feeling at home in so many places, we forget to talk with each other. I love that the Global Product Management Talk exists so that we can form a community of our own."
Each week, The Global Product Management Talk features an expert guest discussing pre-posted questions with the co-hosts and Twitter participants broadcast live over BlogTalkRadio. The transcript of Tweets and podcast are available for on-demand consumption on the web, iTunes, Google Play and mobile devices.
Second Year of Global Product Management Talks!
The Global Product Management Talk recently celebrated its first year of programming with an audience greater than 5,000 listeners to the weekly podcasts and more than 3500 Twitter followers interested in discussing issues related to managing and marketing products with subject matter experts and co-hosts situated in the San Francisco Bay Area, Australia, UK, Canada, India and the Americas.
The Global Product Management Talk raises the bar for what is possible to accomplish in a real time, open platform event by encouraging participants to expand their knowledge base with each event, utilize new products in real time as we introduce and beta test various products for participating, enable participants to showcase their knowledge and share resources, and crowdsource educational content for product people to stay apprised of new developments, thinkers, and events in the practice of managing products from inception to market and innovation.
Weekly, Cindy F. Solomon produces the event, curating guest speakers, and inviting participation via social media. The speaker and co-hosts broadcast live over BlogTalkRadio, while active participation is taking place digitally within the Twitter stream using a social media chat tool to filter out the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk. Following the event, both the recording of the audio discussion and the written transcript of tweets are available for viewing & listening on social media, iTunes and mobile device platforms. Participants are encouraged to expand upon their statements and insights by blogging to continue the conversation. All of the content from the event is bundled to further extend the value and reach of the subject matter.
