We're over the moon that Rich Mironov is headed to AU this February! Hence why we're not scheduling our normal Thursday evening!
In our annual survey, we asked what topics you are interested in & 'building/scaling product teams' was #1 so we'll kick off the year with... How do you arrange the puzzle pieces of roles, responsibilities and people when building or scaling a product team? Rich's talk will help us explore:
- Division of labor: how do we grow from one to three to many product folks?
- End-to-end management of product elements/features, or product owner and business owner roles?
- What does a Head of Product do?
- When do startups need to hire a product person?
This will be interactive, there will be some book giveaways and Rich invites us to 'call BS' on anything. Hope to see you there! Our Speaker:
