Often it seems the product manager role is different depending on where you work, who you work with, what stage the company is in & the current understanding of the value of product management.

Three companies will share how they work and manage product – their structure, how they work with other teams, their challenges and how the team brings value to the business. Each company will give a short presentation on their area and then we will throw to the audience for questions.

Redbubble – will talk about the differences and likenesses between physical and web product development. Nick Cust (http://productanonymous.com/2015/03/how-do-you-manage-products/au.linkedin.com/in/ncust/en), Product Director and Vicki Stirling (http://productanonymous.com/2015/03/how-do-you-manage-products/au.linkedin.com/pub/vicki-stirling/16/69a/590/en), Physical Product Director will talk about each of their sides of the business to dive into the similarities and the distinction between them.

Envato – Envato boasts a community of over 5 million creatives, but dedicated Product Management is a relatively new concept for the company. While growing a team alongside rapid expansion in engineering, the Product team at Envato continually focus on better ways to meet the needs of their highly talented and passionate global community. Luke Meehan (http://productanonymous.com/2015/03/how-do-you-manage-products/au.linkedin.com/pub/luke-meehan/46/204/479/en), Product Manager and Stewart Boon (http://productanonymous.com/2015/03/how-do-you-manage-products/au.linkedin.com/in/stewartboon/en), Product Director will talk about how they get things done with a global, two sided community of authors and buyers.

Zendesk – Zendesk has 20 scrum teams on 4 different continents building customer service software. In his short presentation Aaron Cottrell (http://productanonymous.com/2015/03/how-do-you-manage-products/au.linkedin.com/in/aaroncottrell/en) will outline what has worked, what hasn’t and where Zendesk is continuing to improve as a globally distributed product company.

A big thank you to Redbubble for being our hosts for the evening!
