PRLog - April 11, 2012 - ALBANY, Calif. -- San Francisco – Product managers are compelled to be heads-down and focused on results in order to manage their products while running offensively through the often-complex relationships with Engineering, Marketing, and other functional groups within the business structure. The work of product management itself consumes them leaving little time or energy to strategize about vital organizational concerns such as product management career paths and reporting structures at big companies or getting product management in early enough at start-ups, or the soft skills required for diplomatically handling the people issues let alone consistently tapping into their passion for the work of product management. How can product managers think organizationally, demonstrate value to their executives, and get a seat at the table when it counts?
Rich Mironov, Seasoned Product Executive, Start-up Entrepreneur, Author And Technologist, will speak at the weekly Global Product Management Talk on Monday, April 16, 2012 at the simultaneous times of 4:00-5:00 PM Pacific / 6:00-7:00 PM TEXAS TIME / 7:00-8:00 PM Eastern Time, which will be Tuesday, April 17, 2012 9:00 AM in Sydney, Australia using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk on Twitter.
"I'm thrilled to join the Global Product Management Community for this ProdMgmtTalk. There's a lot of offline discussion about how to structure product management teams, "where do I go from here?" and other organizational challenges.
