Developing a new product

Ellen Chisa and Steven Benario are both experienced Product Managers. After moving to NYC to work for smaller startups, both noticed that tech companies in New York didn't seem to be taking advantage of the some of the best practices that Microsoft has developed and evangelized over 30 years of product development.

This introductory-level class will teach you about the product development process from the perspective of a Product Manager. In particular you'll learn Product Management skills that are useful regardless of your role, and how these skills can be applied to companies and products of all sizes. These key factors include user scenarios, effective specifications, and how to most effectively get sign-off from other stakeholders.

The instructors will also walk through some of the most useful things Microsoft has learned along the way, and how to apply them in a lightweight way to your own product development process. Our goal is to help you combine some of the best parts of what Microsoft has learned over time, with the agility and creativity of the NY startup scene.

    Will Y'all address COMPLIANCE such as UL?

    August 6, 2013

    • Stella M.

      Steve, I will check for you.

    • Stella M.

      Steve, I checked. Since the presenters' expertise is in the software industry they will not be talking about UL type compliance.
