Product Managers are from Pluto* and UXers are from Uranus - a practical guide for improving communication and getting what you want from your relationships.

Session approach:

There are a lot of similarities between Product Managers and UXers in how we think and the work we do but we also see things differently. Hear from a panel of Product & UX folks and their secrets of working collaboratively with each other including:

• How they work together as a team

• What works? What doesn't?

• Where are the potential conflict points between Product & UX - and how to prevent them!

• How they've changed their approach over time

The panel will take questions too - tweet #prodanon if you're shy :)

6pm for 6:30pm start, and pizza & beverages sponsored by our lovely hosts Aconex.
