As a socially motivated product person you want to build products that make the world a better place. Maybe you work for a charity, a not for profit, government or a foundation-funded startup.
So you prioritise your product roadmap to maximise positive social impact, right? Hopefully!
But here are a few things that can disrupt this plan:
> Need to focus on revenue generation
> Funders who are too interested in growth/scale
> Political imperatives
> Priorities of senior stakeholders (internally and externally)
> Your boss went to a conference and wants to build that shiny new AI / big data / machine learning / virtual reality / flying car feature
This is a meetup to share the things that stop us and discuss strategies for maintaining a product roadmap that's focussed on social mission.
• What to bring
• Important to know
We'll keep things pretty informal - there will be some discussion themes on the walls to get everyone talking. We'll have an unconference style board for people to post stories/strategies they'd be up for sharing with the group.
